38 Visual & Performing Arts
Founded in 1890, the Norwich Art School has spearheaded an arts education focus unparalleled in the area. The visual and performing arts are part of NFA’s history and have played an active, central role in the Academy’s evolution.
The presence of Slater Memorial Museum on campus offers students first-hand experience of centuries of fine art and design, history, and culture unavailable elsewhere on a high school campus.
NFA’s arts community is wide and diverse. With 38 courses in the visual and performing arts – dance, theater, fine arts, design, photography, art history, animation, and choral and instrumental music, and more, beginners or accomplished performers, artists, or musicians, will find opportunities to participate and grow in skill and experience at all levels.
