In creative arts, students discover a variety of art forms through a study of dance, drama, music and visual arts.
Studying the creative arts, students learn to appreciate, compose, listen, make and perform. Each art form has its own unique knowledge and skills, elements or concepts as well as a capacity to inspire and enrich lives.
Students must study 100 hours of both music and visual arts during Years 7 to 10. They also have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in other art forms through elective subjects including drama, dance, photography and visual design. Students can then select from a range of courses in Years 11 to 12.
Scone High School values the role the arts play in the development of students. We encourage all students to be involved in the arts through both curricular and co-curricular experiences. Students can study Visual Arts, Music and Drama through to HSC level with the school providing a wide range of extracurricular activities to enrich student learning in the arts.
The school maintains a positive relationship with the Upper Hunter Conservatorium of Music which co-ordinates the school band and conducts an outreach program of lessons for students who would otherwise not be able to access them.
