Sturgeon Bay schools are looking to take a special fine arts initiative.
The high school is currently in the works of a plan, or rather steps, to enhance our fine arts programs, so that they are far beyond a normal school. This would make it obvious that the focus on the fine arts at Sturgeon Bay high school is taken seriously and that it’s valued tremendously, according to Principal Bob Nickel.
Nickel says the fine arts “push” could entail such possibilities as commissioning a professional piece for the high school band… up to starting a high school string program. Another proposal could be student publication, or maybe even professional local artists coming to help teach.
Whether it be for students thinking about careers in the fine arts, or for personal enrichment, the arts are undeniably invaluable, according to Nickel. It is preparation and is a way to round students.
The fine arts initiative effort is very new. However, action to enhance the programs seems to be soon.
