The Integrated Arts Program is an enrichment program of study in the Arts for secondary school Students. The program has been established by the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board to meet the needs of students who have a special interest or talent in the Arts. These students have an opportunity to combine their graduation requirements with an integrated study of Arts including: Drama, Music, Visual Art, and Dance.
Students take special courses that illuminate the connections between all of the Arts. They also have an opportunity to focus their study on one particular art form with other students who have a gift for that form and a keen desire to work, play and learn in that art form.
The aims of the program include: the creation of a safe and positive learning environment for students with artistic gifts, the enrichment of learning in all subjects through arts based teaching/learning strategies, the development of transferable skills acquired through Arts education, career awareness and career preparedness for Arts students in any field of employment.
