Fine Arts

At CTK, we believe the knowledge of art and music is an important aspect of a well-rounded education. Offering courses in music and art, the Fine Arts Department provides students with positive opportunities for self-expression.

Emphasizing art and music appreciation as well as artistic and musical expression, the department encourages CTK students to think independently and confidently.

Courses offered by the Fine Arts Department at CTK

Music

  • This course provides students with broad knowledge of music theory, as well as authentic experience. Students will create a repertoire of their work and perform a musical composition. Embedded in the course are the learned skills of problem-solving, self-reflection, time management, out-of-class study and practice, risk-taking and communicating with mindfulness and respect. Reading and writing skills are developed through research, critiques and reflections.


Art

  • This course explores the fundamental media, techniques and processes of the art form. Students will compose art works as a form of creative expression leading to greater awareness of self and of the world. Through exploration of a variety of art works, with an emphasis on aesthetic judgement and appreciation, students understand art as a historical and cultural expression of values, as well as an agent of social change.
