Art makes us human. It helps us to make sense of our own lives and identify with the lives of others. It is also increasingly recognized as a driver of the innovative thinking needed to solve our world’s most pressing problems. Creativity, collaboration, innovation and design are essential skills for careers in the 21st century. The Visual and Performing Arts Department develops these skills in student artists, while helping them discover their own voices and their own artistry. The department also promotes performances on campus and in the local community through a comprehensive theatre program, a burgeoning choral and instrumental music program, a dynamic dance program, thought-provoking visual art, and student film production.
Through its staff of professional working artists and ongoing programs with the Napa School of Music, the Napa Valley Art Museum, the Napa Valley Performing Art Center at Lincoln Theatre, the Justin-Siena Visual and Performing Arts department provides a unique artistic experience in the Napa area. We invite you to explore each of the artistic discipline sections to learn more about how student artists thrive at Justin-Siena.
