Charleston Collegiate is proud to have a comprehensive Fine Arts program. Each year, CCS students create over a dozen plays, more than a hundred films, and well over a thousand painting, sculpture, photography, ceramic, wood and metal works of art.
As one of our Four Pillars of the CCS Learning Experience, our Fine Arts Program also connects to other academic courses using a cross-curricular learning approach to deepen comprehension. Students are able to write a script and act out the water cycle in science class, create an artistic representation of a character from the novel they are studying in English class, create artwork based on the time period being studied in History, and film their own commercials for selling the app they created in S.T.E.M. class.
Our Fine Arts department’s mission is to give our students a creative outlet as well as a competitive edge in today’s world.
CCS Fine Arts classes include:
- 2D Design
- 3D Design
- Digital Imagery
- Graphic Design
- Drawing and Painting
Our Music program presents two major concerts a year and hosts guest performances from symphonies, bands, and universities to expose our students to many forms of musical skills and entertainment. Our students are taught the foundations of music and work their way up to become learned musicians. Our Eleventh and Twelfth grade students also have the opportunity to Major in music.
Our Industrial Arts Program exposes students to the value of working with metal, as well as teaches students skills needed to build both artistic creations and necessary items for the school.
Fine Arts Week is an annual Arts capstone which features daily performances from students and guest artists, a school-wide art exhibition, a film festival, and our spring concert and theatrical production.
