Visual Arts & Drama
The visual arts program at Fortis familiarizes students with elements of art, principles of design, artists, art history, and various techniques and media. Our students gain confidence in the making of art as they build skills, foster creativity, and learn to appreciate art and beauty around us.
Students will study the elements of drama – one act plays, musicals, classic literature, and other great plays of western civilization. Performance selections will be made in consideration of the students’ talents as we put together a show designed just for our group of extraordinary players. Dress rehearsals, competitions and evening performances required.
During the school year we have numerous social events for your student to participate in and enjoy time with their friends outside of school. The year starts off with our snowcone social at the school and our fall dodgeball tournament is a great competition between grades. In the spring our annual camping trip and spring social dance are always a hit with Fortis students.
