The arts are among society's most compelling and effective paths for developing 21st century skills. Through fine arts education, students learn to solve problems and make decisions, think creatively, and articulate a vision. Students gain a creative and competitive edge because fine arts education gives them the ability to imagine what might be possible. In addition, art classes give students increased self-esteem, self-discipline, and the responsibility to complete a task from start to finish. The Irish Gifted Academy is blessed to offer students Visual Arts, Theatre and Museum Design.
