Carlsbad Unified School District
Festival of the Arts
About the CUSD Festival of the Arts
The Festival of The Arts began in 2016 as an event to showcase the talents of students in Sage Creek High School's growing arts department. Over the years it has grown in volume of works and in attendance. Just last year, in April 2019, the Festival expanded beyond Sage Creek into a Carlsbad Unified School District event. We are so happy to showcase works from around the district!
Now in its second year as a CUSD event, we are thrilled to invite even more CUSD participants. We hope to see you there!
Our Mission is to raise Arts Awareness in our community and to help financial support our growing VAPA programs.
The "A" in STEAM; Why it's Important to Us!
In an ever-changing society, colleges and workforces are putting more emphasis on skills such as collaboration and innovation for their employees. The arts help prepare students for their futures by providing opportunities to follow their imagination and curiosities, learn the importance of all facets of design, and augment language and critical-thinking skills.
Additionally, the arts complement the skills needed in academic endeavors in high school and beyond. By using both sides of their brain--analytical and creative--students foster both freedom and discipline; independent problem solving and critical thinking skills as well as collaboration; and spontaneity and perseverance.
The arts have the unique ability to empower each student’s individual and collaborative successes. Our Visual and Performing Arts Programs are designed to bolster student ingenuity, encourage them to follow their passions and interests, and uplift one another.
