|What makes Eliot Arts unique?|
Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Marching Band, and Orchestra.
Music students learn to play, perform, and understand music, as well as compose, write, and play songs. They become well-versed in many aspects of music, learning industry standard software as well as various musical instruments. Music students get many opportunities to perform at a variety of venues, including our state-of-the-art auditorium (expected completion date, Summer 2014).
From Ballet to Hip Hop
The dance program exposes students to various types of dance, from ballet to hip hop. Using our newly renovated dance studio as a classroom space, dance students expand their cultural literacy along with their knowledge of technique. Instruction is provided by our own faculty with guest teachers from our community partner, Lineage Dance of Pasadena. Eliot dancers have opportunities to perform both on and off-campus.
From Writing Screenplays to Performing.
Theater Arts students work in a variety of disciplines, performing including individual monologues and scenes as well as writing screenplays. Students in the Theater Arts Department have the opportunity to work alongside professional actors and directors, such as David Guerra, a teacher and performing artist from the Music Center. With the completion of our new auditiorium in summer 2014, students will also have opportunities to learn the technical aspects of stage craft by working on lighting, sound, and set design.
Studio Art and Digital Art.
The Visual Arts Program consists of Studio Arts and Digital Arts. It is project-based, and promotes problem solving and creativity. Eliot's award-winning visual arts students can be found finishing up a painting in the art room, or putting the final touches on Photoshop document in the digital lab. Students benefit from our partnerships with Art Center and the Huntington, learning from art professionals and participating in exhibitions and contests as well as developing their own portfolios. In addition to formal arts instruction, students benefit from the opportunity to participate in Room 13, an after-school program that is part of an international network of student-run art studios.
