Arts education is a core component of Scheck Hillel’s curriculum from early childhood through high school. Instruction is offered through a framework of educational standards in a variety of disciplines, including music, theater, and the visual arts. Scheck Hillel arts educators are highly-trained instructors who spark a lasting appreciation for artistic expression. As students make personal choices for their creative outlets, they are able to deepen and continually improve their practice. Frequently, it is in art classes where students are heard saying, “Wow. I didn’t know I could do that!”

Research has shown that an arts education enhances academic achievement and school engagement, and enriches campus life. Students make personal choices for their creative outlets while gaining respect and understanding for all fine and performing art forms.
 
Whether your child’s passion is learning to play the violin or painting a masterpiece, there is a place for everyone in Scheck Hillel’s Jordan Alexander Ressler Arts Program. View the schoolwide calendar for a schedule of upcoming events.
