Fine Arts Curriculum


ARTS EDUCATION/ INTEGRATION: We believe in the power of the Arts to improve listening, benefit language development, and cultivate motor skills to assist the mind with discovering and obtaining knowledge. Arts education leads to stronger reading proficiency, increased math abilities, and higher general intelligence scores.


ARTS METHODS: At Nuner, every grade level class meets for 45 minutes during the school day with an Arts Specialist. We offer Visual Art, Physical Education/Movement, Instrumental Music, Vocal Music, and Theatre. Students are encouraged to express themselves through various art mediums and enhance their understanding of academic and national core art standards.


CULTURAL IMMERSION: Through a partnership with the University of Notre Dame, we have created a program that blends the arts with languages and cultures. We promote linguistic and cultural/societal awareness and provide exposure to many ethnicities so our students gain practical knowledge about the world. Currently, our Fulbright Scholars have introduced Nuner students to Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Arabic, Bengali, Russian, Hindi, Portuguese, Hausa, Swahili, and Quechua.


PERFORMANCES: Nuner students are invited to be involved in a minimum of three major musical productions each school year, in addition to having their artwork displayed at two Art Shows. Select student groups are also featured throughout the year at many community performances and local events.
