The arts present a unique and challenging environment for students, providing an atmosphere of innovation and creativity. Artistic learning teaches students to be resourceful, articulate and perceptive.

Through Buena’s Art, Music and Theatre programs students obtain a meaningful and memorable education in ancient and time honored fields of study that are valued and sought after in today's economy.

In the Fine Arts, students learn to apply their craft and become able problem-solvers. They learn adaptability and a strong work ethic. They receive intrinsic rewards, such as feelings of self-accomplishment and confidence.

The experiences gained in these classes cultivate 21st century skills. In Buena Fine Arts - creativity is the key. And that key unlocks doors of opportunity for these students today and into the future.
