Visual & Performing Arts
The Windward Visual & Performing Arts Program provides instruction in the disciplines of music, studio art, and drama. The structured and sequential curriculum promotes artistic expression within the context of a multisensory-based, direct instruction program so that the language needs of students are accommodated through the use of visual, kinesthetic, and auditory models.
Diversity is woven throughout the arts curriculum, and teachers seek opportunities to expand student exposure to people and ideas different from their own. Learning about the world of art empowers students to develop sensitivity and gain self-confidence that they too have the ability to make a contribution through their unique voices. The success of the Arts Program is evidenced by the numerous concerts and plays performed as well as the prolific works of art that are exhibited on the walls and in the display cases throughout the campuses.
