Welcome to the Fine Arts Department.
Our Fine Arts programs provide excellent preparation for the student who intends to focus on the arts in college or career. But you don't have to be planning on a career in the arts to benefit from the program. Our courses benefit all students because the process of creating and critiquing art engages students in higher-order thinking skills such as analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and flexible, imaginative problem-solving. In recognition of this, at least one year of Fine Arts is required for graduation from the Tamalpais Union High School District and for entry into the CSU and UC systems.
