Welcome to Fine Arts
Connie Enis, Fine Arts Education Coordinator
Sherry Ollis, Administrative Assistant
Our system's art education program includes visual arts as well as the performing arts of theatre, instrumental music (band), choral music and dance. In the elementary schools, students have access to both visual art and choral music. In the middle schools, instrumental music is added as an elective as well as theatre in certain schools. In the high schools, both theatre and dance are included as well. These courses are comprised of sequential and honors' levels. Students are selected for all-county honors' performances in band, chorus, and dance. High-school students also compete in the Spotlight on Talent show and the One-Act Play Festival. All school levels are eligible to participate in Arts Alive in the spring. Most events are held in the Odell Wiliamson Auditorium at Brunswick Community College.
Countywide support and especially the partnership of the Brunswick County Arts Council help students compete in local, regional, state, and national competitions as well as showcase their individual talent and creative works.
There are approximately 60 fine arts' teachers, assigned to the 19 schools of Brunswick County. These talented teachers are committed to using arts' integration along with multiple intelligence and learning styles as an effective hands-on, relevant teaching strategy for cross-curricular study. They reinforce the concept that learning should be fun and personal as the "whole child" develops his/her self-esteem to be successful.
