Fine arts classes at AMHS offer the student experience in performing or creating works of art. Students 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.
Our annual spring musical, fall play, art show, and numerous band performances foster creativity, individualism and are a true expression of imagination.
