Fine Arts education at Saint John Vianney High School is based on the philosophy that art and music are essential components of a quality life. Education in the fine arts is an integral part of the total school program. The arts provide varied and powerful ways of communicating ideas and feelings both as individuals and members of communities. The visual and performing arts challenge students' creative abilities and foster individual expression. In accordance with the social teachings of our Catholic church, this department emphasizes the principle of Solidarity. Music and Art recognize the human family and embrace the unique contributions of our global neighbors, regardless of national, racial, ethic, economic, and ideological differences.
