Each fine arts class at AMHS offers a student the chance to experience performing or creating works of art. In each class the student will learn about diverse cultures and artistic history, creative expression, and public presentation from professional artists. Students are exposed to art criticism as they remember, understand, apply, analyze, evaluate and create new works of visual and performance art.
AMHS prepares students who wish to pursue a career or study post secondary art at the high school level. Jobs in interior design, graphic arts, fashion design, animation, architecture, photography, video production, sound design, theater technology, vocal and instrumental music and acting, all require a strong foundation of the arts. Jobs in other fields benefit from a background in fine arts because the arts explore relationships between ideas and objects and serve as links between thought and action. AMHS propels students to be divergent thinkers and meet the needs of a complex and competitive society.
