The SDSCPA Visual & Media Arts Department is dedicated to providing a quality, innovative, and in-depth learning environment. Our curriculum is sequentially designed to prepare our students with the techniques, skills, and knowledge necessary for postsecondary and professional pursuits. We are committed to the development of each student’s creative voice and passion.

The SCPA Visual Arts and Media Department is designed to provide a multitude of opportunities for students to develop creative talents, critical thinking, technical and problem solving skills. Creativity involves passion, adventurousness, risk-taking and knowledge of art making. By providing our students with a sense of identity and a forum for positive expression, we aim to inspire them to seek innovation in their own lives, the communities they live in and the world.

Our Visual Arts and Media course offerings are comprehensive, sequential and standards based. The courses provide a rigorous conservatory experience in art education. Foundation classes focus on traditional skills and disciplines. In the later years students are encouraged to develop their own voice and use the appropriate media to express their ideas. This program is based on professional practice and fine art and is meant to prepare students for postsecondary education and twenty-first century careers in the arts related industries.
