Huntington’s Arts in Education program is an integral part of the educational experience at all grade levels in the district. The arts provide an exciting, participatory approach to learning that enriches all areas of the school curriculum. The Arts in Education Committee researches and plans both cultural arts and exploratory programs that are linked directly to core curriculum concepts and skills. Students participate in a wide range of experiences, from seeing their own pieces of creative writing performed by professional actors and chatting with famous authors to working with real scientists and “meeting” characters from American history.

Funding for Arts in Education programs is provided annually by each school’s PTA unit. The district’s Office of Fine and Performing Arts and the PTA Council oversees the Arts in Education Committee.

The Arts in Education program presents programs designed to enhance the study of children’s literature, the humanities, mathematics, science, fine and performing arts, health and character education. Some recent and reoccurring programs and artists have included Japanese Storytelling with Mime, Mask and Music with Kuniko Yamamoto, author Tracey Delio, Theatre Three presenting From the Fires – Voices of the Holocaust, and Shakespeare workshops by Stages on Sound.

The Fine Arts play a significant role in the Huntington educational program.  From kindergarten through their high school years, students create original art work in a wide variety of media.  Skill-based instruction in contour drawing, value, light shading, color theory, perspective, two dimensional and three dimensional design is provided sequentially throughout the grades. 

Huntington High School students have the opportunity to take advanced studies in the fine arts of drawing and painting, ceramics and sculpture, and fashion design, as well as technology based programs such as computer graphics, advertising and design, media arts, video, photography and animation.  Seniors may also participate in career internships in all areas of the visual arts.  Student art work is displayed at the District Art Show held in May at the site of the annual budget vote. 

Huntington students’ art work is frequently displayed and honored in many local exhibits and competitions.  Fifth grade and high school students participate in the Heckscher Museum’s docent program, as well.

The Performing Arts play an important role in the Huntington educational program. From kindergarten through their high school years, students learn to read, write, create and perform music.  The elementary classroom music program in Huntington serves as a model for music literacy instruction nationally.  The instrumental and choral music training which begins in fourth grade provides small group weekly instruction as well as ensemble rehearsal experience for all performing groups. 

Huntington’s music program is well represented in the county and state music festivals each year. The high school takes great pride in having one of largest symphonic orchestras in the state, and being represented nationally by the renowned Huntington Blue Devil marching band.

Our performing arts program includes annual theatrical performances in the intermediate, middle and high schools as well as theater arts electives in the high school.  Dance instruction is now offered as a physical education elective at the high school.  Students interested in dance competition may audition for the Highstepper dance team or Step team.
