Expressive Arts includes Visual Arts and Performing Arts. These subject areas offer our students a valuable opportunity to discover and develop their creativity on the stage or in the studio. Classes combine both practial and theory  work, and subjects within Expressive Arts are available from Year 9 through to Year 13 and are offered in NCEA. Many students go on to tertiary study in both Visual and Performing Arts.
