The Arts

The Arts at Unley High School is a diverse and rich program that incorporates both Visual and Performing Arts.

  • Visual Arts includes Art, Design and Craft.
  • Performing Arts include Drama, Stagecraft, Production and Music.

Building on their knowledge, understanding and skills, students have the opportunity to explore both traditional and contemporary practice whilst making cultural and community connections. Through critical and practical study, students explore, experiment, create, analyse and critique. They are involved in local and community exhibitions and performances including visiting artists and exhibitions, Concerts, Musicals, Cabarets and Touring Companies. Students enjoy the Arts because it provides them opportunities to be creative and to reflect aspects of themselves and their world through the products they create.
