Adrian Public Schools Fine Arts Program
"The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind....artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big picture thinkers."
- Daniel Pink, author of "A Whole New Mind"

Students throughout the Adrian Public School system have the chance to develop their artistic gifts through Adrian Public Schools commitment to the fine arts. All buildings have dedicated art, choral and instrumental music rooms.The high school as a 630-seat state-of-the-art theater which is used for performances beginning with elementary school students. From ceramics to video production, painting to photography, students K-12 are exposed to many different experiences in the visual arts. Beginning at Middle School 5-6, students have the opportunity to participate in musicals and plays in the theater. Dance clubs are a part of the high school experience. There are also a myriad of after-school programs and field trips at all levels which cater to the artistic and performance curiosity of students of all ages. And, don't forget the annual Festival of the Arts held in May, which showcases performance, artwork and many hands-on experiences of all kinds for students and adults in the Lenawee community.
