Performing Arts


Art at Destiny School of the ArtsArt

Every child has a creative side and most love to get good and gooey! This class uses the students’ creative impulses and develops them into works of art, while also developing fine motor skills needed for writing and cutting. Each child will utilize color in many different ways while demonstrating hands on approach to sketching, drawing, letters and words.



Creative Movement at Destiny School of the ArtsCreative Movement

Imagination is the key to this class. The students imagination will soar as they experience what it feels like to move like the wind or pounce like a tiger. Every class will emphasis creative movement skills that help develop balance, hand eye coordination, sports fundamentals and focus skills such as listening and following directions. Sequencing skills will also be put to practice as the students dance the beginning and the ending of a story or song.


Music at Destiny School of the ArtsMusic

We use the child’s natural love of music to give every child the opportunity for singing and vocal development, listening and focus skills, playing of simple instruments (including beginning piano), and exploring musical concepts all at a developmentally appropriate level. This class introduces essential building block to many concepts such as letter sounds, numbers, sequencing and patterns.
