Fine Arts

This week marks National Arts in Education Week! We are blessed to have the support of all stakeholders, which allows students to make meaningful experiences in their public education experience. It is most important to understand is that the arts are more than any concert, recital, stage performance, or painting. The arts cultivate intelligence through the most basic and human experiences. Fostering the imagination and aesthetic skills is a way of thinking that not all experience, but we at RHHS are proud to offer for all students.

An education rich in the arts provides a means to understand ourselves and the broader world around us, to unpack history and culture, express complex ideas, formulate innovations, and generate creative solutions. These outcomes can be achieved for an entire school community simply by investing in elementary, middle, and high school arts programs. An investment in art education can yield powerful results, and we know that the career marketplace has an ever-increasing need for creative skills that a quality art education can provide.

Whether through direct instruction, working on a collaborative community project, or by gathering to celebrate the annual student art exhibition, the arts have a unique ability to build connective fibers among students, teachers, families, and local leadership. We need these connections now more than ever;

We appreciate your continued support as we celebrate art education, and all its benefits, in our students’ lives. If your child is currently taking performing or visual art courses, or if they have, please continue to support their creative endeavors.
