Performing & Visual Arts

Create. Inspire. Learn.

The DMPS Fine and Performing Arts programs empower students to use their minds creatively, and inspire students through diversity in learning.

Students who participate in DMPS arts programs broaden their life experiences and passion for the arts, and they become equipped with the critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and problem-solving skills needed in the 21st century.

Our programs are wide-ranging and highly acclaimed, and include comprehensive offerings in music, visual art, and drama for students in grades K-12. For more information about drama, music and the visual arts, please visit the links in the menu to right.
