FINE ARTS VISION & MISSION
Queen Anne’s County Public Schools, in its commitment to educating the whole child, embraces the belief that “the fine arts are among humanity’s greatest aesthetic and intellectual achievements” (Maryland Essential Learner Outcomes for Fine Arts) and need to be integrated in students’ programs throughout their education. Our vision is to increase the access, equity and quality of arts education in Queen Anne's County.
The Fine Arts Program (visual arts, music, theatre, media arts and dance) in Queen Anne’s County is designed to foster creative potential in each student and provide a high quality, sequential program of studies which communicates a broad range of customs, beliefs, ideas and feelings. The fine arts are the primary means of transmitting culture throughout history, influencing a broad range of discovery and 21st Century skills in various disciplines. The fine arts are an essential part of every child’s learning and cognitive development, sharpening analytical skills, encouraging abstract associations, innovative thinking, and creative problem solving.
