Visual & Performing Arts (VAPA)

The Visual and Performing Arts program denotes quality, rigor, and choice, with opportunities for creative expression and continuous growth. The curriculum and assessment is mainly performance based, which allows for students of all backgrounds to develop a variety of learning modes and success in a safe environment. Our goal is to have students develop self-confidence and self-expression.

Visual Arts

The Visual Arts department at Warren High School offers students a variety of beginning level art courses, with no prior experience required.

Students have the opportunity to grow as an artist by taking intermediate and advanced level courses, allowing them to develop a portfolio of work that can be applied toward college entry. Representatives from multiple art colleges visit our classes throughout the year, providing information on current majors and career pathways that they offer.
