The arts are meant to be shared. . .

The School of Fine Arts at First Presbyterian Church seeks to give all of our students chances to share their gifts as they explore their craft. It is through this process of performing that they learn so much about the world around them.

Imagine a young girl just beginning ballet, and having a chance to share what she’s working on for an excited church audience.  Imagine a young violinist who leaves his lesson to go directly into orchestra rehearsal where he plays side by side with his teacher!

If this sounds like a great environment for you or your child, don’t miss out!  The School of Fine Arts has a world class faculty ready and eager to teach you everything they possibly may.
