The Arts at NSA

The Arts at Nansemond-Suffolk encompasses both the performing and visual arts. We believe that passionate and gifted instruction is essential in building a strong artistic foundation for a lifetime of intellectual curiosity. It is a mission to guide students toward an understanding that art is a form of communication and expression – not merely an enterprise for the talented few.

In the Arts at NSA we explore the self-awareness and self-acceptance that the performing arts opens to a new experience. And then there is that willingness to take risks – that critical element in preparing our students by the unique and universal power of knowing one’s self.  The Arts program encourages all students to complement their course of study through various foundation courses before continuing their educational experience at the advanced level. Within a careful and sequential program, students are provided the opportunities for creativity, self-expression and individuality.
