Fine Arts

The Traverse Bay Area ISD Fine Arts Learning Community shares a common vision of creating lifelong learners through arts literacy. Our collaboration provides the opportunity to learn from one another, align procedures and practices, monitor the effectiveness of our instruction by developing and sharing results of common assessment practices, and sustain mutual accountability for all students’ learning.

Goal of Fine Arts Education:
Success and achievement in the arts demands engagement in the four fundamental creative practices of imagination, investigation, construction, and reflection in multiple contexts. These meta-cognitive activities nurture the effective work habits of curiosity, creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem solving, communication, and collaboration, each of which transfers to the many diverse aspects of learning and life in the 21st century.
