An artist at Nathan Hale Arts Magnet School should be able to experience art not only as a creator of an artistic piece, they should be exposed to arts and use the arts as a means to engage in learning of non-arts content. In addition, students should be able to think critically about a work of art and transfer those same cognitive skills to notice deeply, pose questions and make connections. What makes Nathan Hale Arts Magnet School unique is that artists will experience direct and indirect learning of the National Core Arts Standards. The National Core Arts Standards, adopted by Connecticut in the fall of 2016, outline 5 artistic disciplines for our students. These disciplines include Music, Visual, Theater, Dance and Media Arts. Nathan Hale Arts Magnet School offers essential classes in each of these disciplines, while also working to integrate these arts into the general education setting.
