The Arts at Providence is known as Providence High Arts in our community. Providence High Arts boasts two award winning programs in Performing Arts and Visual Arts. Annually, artists representing all disciplines participate in local, regional, and national competitions and have collected dozens of awards.
Each year, faculty design courses and select materials that affirms our mission and reinforces the school’s values of dignity, compassion, justice, excellence and integrity. Providence High Arts empowers students to express themselves authentically, allowing them to emerge from the program more willing participants, eager to make an impact on the world in which they live.
Providence's Performing Arts department engages students in a rigorous curriculum, focusing on both theory and practical application, and as a part of the larger Providence High School community which was founded on the principal of educating the whole human being, benefitting from a rich and robust academic and spiritual environment. Led by a team of highly qualified educators who are working professional artists themselves, Providence High Artists enjoy a vast network of resources widening their opportunity for success at every stage—high school, college and beyond.
With artists studying at top tier colleges and universities including, USC, Chapman University, The New School, Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, New York University: Tisch School of the Arts, Boston Conservatory and Philadelphia’s UArts, and making an impact on the world as professionals, the lessons learned while engaged at Providence High Arts provide a lifetime of return.
Visual Arts at Providence strives to prepare students to be successful in practical future real-world situations as well as continued education in the arts. In all visual arts courses, we work to teach the skills needed to become successful creative artists through an innovative and challenging curriculum. The Visual Arts department is committed to promoting an understanding of the arts and encouraging students to showcase their work and skills beyond the classroom.
Students regularly participate in contests and showcases both on campus and in the greater Los Angeles community, including the Robert Graham Memorial Art Exhibit at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, the Burbank Youth Art Expo, the California Art Education Association's Young Artist Month juried exhibition, and the 28th District Congressional Art Show, and many more.
