The goals of the high school art program are achieved through specific courses and studio experiences. It enables the student to be involved individually and in groups, in problem-solving, inquiry, and in skill development through various media.
Pomperaug Regional High School music department offers students the opportunity to nurture their musical skills through ensemble and classroom experiences. Music students are able to participate in multiple ensembles, further enriching their total musical experience at Pomperaug High School. Concerts for all performing groups occur twice a year. As an outgrowth of the large performing ensembles, the opportunity to perform in a smaller group setting may arise. These groups, such as girls choir, flute choir, etc. are open to all PHS music students based on availability. This is not a scheduled course and no credit is awarded.
In the Theatre Arts Department here at Pomperaug, you can learn to be comfortable speaking in front of groups, improvise when you make a mistake, create character, and learn the art of non-verbal storytelling. If you are more interested in the technical aspects, you can get involved in backstage work such as: building sets, painting and creating art for the stage, sound and lighting design, costume and make-up design, digital art and publicity. You will learn collaboration, creative problem solving skills, and an acceptance of all types of people as we honor the differences we all have through storytelling. Classes you can choose from include: Stagecraft, Acting One, Acting Two, and Sketch Comedy and Improvisation. We also provide after school opportunities for students who take leadership responsibilities in producing or acting in a Fall Play and a Winter Musical.
