The Arts Program at Capital Preparatory Magnet School provides an opportunity for students to receive a comprehensive and diverse arts education.  Capital Prep believes that an education that includes Art, Drama and Music is essential to the cognitive and social growth of every student and, when integrated with topics and themes of their classroom, can enhance everyday learning to make a lasting impression.

According to a 2002 report by Americans for the Arts, the benefits of Arts Education are:

  • Stimulates and develops the imagination and critical thinking, and refines cognitive and creative skills.
  • Has a tremendous impact on the developmental growth of every child and has proven to help level the "learning field" across socio-economic boundaries.
  • Strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, adding to overall academic achievement and school success.
  • Develops a sense of craftsmanship, quality task performance, and goal-setting—skills needed to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
  • Teaches children life skills such as developing an informed perception; articulating a vision; learning to solve problems and make decisions; building self-confidence and self-discipline; developing the ability to imagine what might be; and accepting responsibility to complete tasks from start to finish.
  • Nurtures important values, including team-building skills; respecting alternative viewpoints; and appreciating and being aware of different cultures and traditions.
There is no bulletin board in existence that is large enough to display all of the creative student work; therefore this online gallery was created. The student work in Art, Drama and Music is divided in the tabs above by grade level. Please enjoy and be sure to let us know what you think!
