Overview

Fine and Practical Arts Department


 

The Fine and Practical Arts program at Aliso Niguel High School  offers students opportunities for self-expression in the disciplines of visual and performing arts, as well as career technical education in a variety of practical arts classes.

The programs build on independent discovery and collaborative achievement while respecting individual interests and learning styles. The primary purpose of these classes is to help expand the development of student thinking, integrate with common core standards, and foster a more expansive educational experience. 

The arts program also bridges curriculum content in all grade levels while fostering depth and understanding of the arts and the artist's contributions as an integral part of the world's culture.  We strive to widen the educational experience beyond the core class curriculum.
