The Fine Arts
Are you looking for a dynamic environment where creativity and exploration are the cornerstones of the educational experience? Through our Music, Visual Art programs and Drama courses, we tap into your creative spirit while developing fundamental skills in your specific area of study. Our focus is on your success as both a student and an artist. We will provide you with in-depth learning opportunities and one-on-one instructor time not often found at other institutions.
An artist looks at the world a little differently. Learning to express oneself is a journey and an adventure all at the same time. At GPRC, we will inspire, motivate and encourage you to explore the visual process through drawing, visual fundamentals, painting, sculpture, photography and design. Our visual art studios provide opportunities for all types of visual art production. You will have access to drawing, painting and sculpture studios, photography labs, a large well-equipped woodshop, welding equipment, a kiln, audiovisual equipment, computer labs and a video-editing suite.
Possible Careers Include: Art director, art therapist, art educator, craft artist, fine artist, graphic designer, animator
Unlock the potential that is discovered through unlimited creative energy and freedom of expression at GPRC. Acting, improvisation, dynamics of movement and collaboration are explored as the actor in you develops. Perhaps it’s the magic and the “behind the scenes” of theatre that ignite your imagination. Explore your talents and develop your craft as a theatre technician. We want to nurture your artistic talent by creating the role of your life. An integral part of the drama program is the aspect of performance and at GPRC the opportunities to perform and master your craft are endless.
