Introduction to the H-F MVP
The H-F Media, Visual and Performing Arts Academy is a two-year program where students have the opportunity to develop their talent in an art-focused
field. The MVP is designed to afford the students who are passionate about their art, a unique experience where art is the focal point of their education. The culmination of that experience is a collaborative project in which they will work with other creative thinkers to solve a real-world problem. Each student will focus on a specific art concentration, refine his/her craft through rigorous courses, and participate in unique and collaborative experiences throughout the program.
An education in the Fine Arts allows students to be creative and expressive in several ways. A report by the Rand Corporation™ highlights how the fine
artist “can connect more deeply to the world and open them to new ways of seeing.” The research in cognitive brain development has shown that embracing the fine arts in learning creates a deeper more meaningful educational experience. The fine arts academy will encourage collaboration across the arts and connect students to preparation for post-secondary art study.
Why a fine arts academy?

• Analyze and synthesize works of art:
visual, digital media, theatrical, and musical.
• Create and/or compose original art
• Learn and work collaboratively across the arts
• Articulate artistry through writing
• Demonstrate improved growth and confidence as an artist
• Problem solve using the creative process, personal innovation and reflection
"The H-F Fine Arts Academy is committed to fostering passions, cultivating creativity and personal talent, developing future leaders
