FINE & PERFORMING ARTS PATHWAY

The Don Bosco Prep Fine & Performing Arts Pathway is an academic pathway for students interested in Music, Theater, and Art.

Music Concentration
The Music Concentration is for those wishing to pursue professional-level training in the performing arts. Designed to build skill, artistry and music literacy at a high level of competency, students will have opportunities to perform alongside distinguished musicians and faculty from major symphony orchestras, universities, and conservatories, as well as professional musicians from around the world….some of the most celebrated names in music – from classical superstars to Broadway actors to acclaimed composers.

Theater Concentration
The Theater Concentration aims to empower young men by cultivating life skills, selfexpression, and confidence through theater experiences. These experiences provide like-minded artists with a strong foundation of theater education and performance in a safe and supportive environment. The program is designed to inspire Don Bosco Prep students and to set the stage for the rest of their lives.

Art Concentration
The Art Concentration introduces the technical skills and fundamentals of art.  Incorporating art history, aesthetics, and art criticism, students develop an art vocabulary, form opinions, and learn to write about their own artwork. The Concentration is designed to accommodate artists of all skill levels and foster a love of experimentation and revision.  Students are exposed to a wide array of 2-D and 3-D media, styles, and techniques, allowing students to unleash their inner creativity in exciting, project-based learning.
