About Fine Arts
AKINS VISUAL ARTS / 2018
The Akins Fine Arts Department believes that a Fine Arts education is essential for the development of the whole child. The arts provide students with unique experiences that allow them to explore their passions, maximize their creativity and critical thinking skills, and learn valuable lessons about self-motivation, dedication, team work, and communication.
AISD is a recognized leader in urban education and is dedicated to providing an arts-rich education for every student.
By enrolling in these fine arts courses, students are also eligible to participate in contests such as Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE) as well as other various events and art exhibits throughout the community. Fine Arts students from AISD have won numerous district, state, and national awards and scholarships, and many have gone on to pursue the arts in higher education and beyond.
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
