Arts Overview

UNIS arts programs offer opportunities for studio practice, problem solving, and cultural investigation through music (classical and contemporary music), drama (acting, directing, and play writing), film (filmmaking practice and film history and theory), and visual art (drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, computer graphics, and digital photography).

By studying different artistic traditions, students become aware of the cultural contexts that inform perception and imagination and begin to see their own work in context.

We aim to propel UNIS to its place as a leader in every form of the arts,  so that all students, including gifted and talented young artists, musicians and actors, will clamor to join.

"Arts are fundamental to the human condition—an essential source of communication, expression and understanding."

As music is fundamental to human expression on many levels, at UNIS, our music department gives students the curriculum and environment to learn about, explore, experience, perform and enjoy music in relation to themselves, others, and the world around them, past and present.
