This pathway is a three-year program that provides motivated students with an engaging, art-driven education. At each grade level, students are enrolled in art, English language arts, social science, and science classes. Art-related themes are integrated across the curriculum, connecting projects to students' lives and making learning fun.

Unique course offerings, job-shadowing, guest lecturers, internship programs, frequent counseling and academic support programs help prepare students for college or an entry-level career in the arts.

The ArtVenture experience puts students in a highly effective small learning community within a big school where student/teacher relationships provide additional support for success.

They find work as animators, architects, art teachers, art therapists, costume, and fashion designers, lighting technicians, makeup artists, muralists, museum curators, photographers, set designers, web designers, and much more.
