Fine Arts Department
The Arts Program at GEMS United School is rich and varied. Students can choose to study fine arts, choral and/or instrumental music. Our goal is to provide a natural vehicle where students can express themselves and interpret the world around them. Students learn that they are part of a living and changing culture.
Through the arts, students engage in imaginative and innovative thought and action. They develop the ability to communicate and represent their thoughts, feelings, and ideas in numerous ways. Because of the creative potential in The Arts, they learn to think in divergent ways and with increased complexity.
Participation in performing arts, in particular, promotes self-discipline, confidence, motivation, and self-esteem as students practice, take risks, and share themselves and their talents publicly in front of others. It offers a unique form of communication and as a means of self-expression not afforded by any other discipline.
At GEMS United School, students have easy, consistent access to many opportunities to explore interests, uncover a new passion, or deepen existing passions.
