Walk into the auditorium to see students acting out a scene from a play.

Walk into the choir room to hear the harmonies of the voices singing in unison.

Walk past a classroom to see students learning piano and guitar.

Walk into the band room to hear the beating of the drum line, or into the orchestra room and hear the beautiful music coming from the strings.

Walk into the art rooms to see students meticulously sketching their assignment for the week. GRC makes all of this possible through our sensational fine arts program.

The long list of fine arts classes that are available to students is outstanding.

All of these classes give students the opportunity to explore any of their interests throughout their school day.

Often when people think about fine arts classes they make the assumption that fines arts is only or mostly music, but there’s more to arts than just music.

For instance, classes for drama, ceramics, visual arts, and art history are some of the other classes that are offered to students.

In addition, this year GRC is offering a new AP music theory class with Mr. Olson.

This music theory class helps contribute to the arts because it teaches rhythm, key signatures, and many more things to help any student with the interest of studying music.

According to Cohort coordinator Mrs. Lowther, GRC is capable of having advanced facilities and fine arts classes because the principal and some board members are supportive of the arts and the teachers here are very talented and some have more than just one skill that they are capable of teaching.

Even if there is no room in a student’s schedule to participate in fine arts class during the school day, one opportunity to contribute to the arts includes the school play in the spring.

The play allows students the chance to take part in something they love and work with people who also want to be a part of a team to accomplish a successful production.

GRC is definitely in good shape when it comes to fine arts and the facilities that are available to students.

The school really deserves recognition for giving students the opportunity to express themselves through something they love to do.
