Fine, Applied and Performing Arts

"The life of the arts, far from being an interruption, a distraction, in the life of a nation, is very close to the center of a nation's purpose - and is a test of the quality of a nation's civilization." --- John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1963)

The arts are an integral part of the human experience and, therefore, an essential component in the education of all people. They have equal value with all other intellectual and creative pursuits and enable us to celebrate and preserve our diverse cultural heritage. Students of the arts actively participate in and experience their learning, using all of their senses while discovering and developing their own unique bits of intelligence and learning styles.

The mission of the Watertown Public Schools Fine Arts Program is to foster creative expression in students by providing the essential skills and knowledge necessary for those who wish to pursue a career in the arts. We also seek to create a sensitivity to and respect for the arts in all students, enhancing the quality of their lives and an understanding of the diversity of human expression in the global village in which we all live.
