Learn more about each of the school’s secondary program streams or majors below:
The dance program at Langley Fine Arts is designed to “refine, challenge and expand” students’ technical and creative potential by fostering a creative, inclusive learning environment. The program focuses on technique, composition, choreography and performance, and students also learn the science behind dance and movement – including anatomy, nutrition, and injury prevention.
In the school’s drama program, students learn to work collaboratively in groups while stretching the limits of their imagination. Students will learn traditional styles of acting and theatre work, while also developing their own projects. Whether it’s creating and starring in a one-act play, learning to direct with an eye toward the film or television industry, or working behind the scenes in theatre tech, Langley Fine Arts’ drama major leaves students with useful skills that will benefit them, whether or not they choose a future in the theatrical arts.
Students in the music major program learn technical and musical skills on their chosen instrument (or voice) through solo work and collaborative ensemble performances. Students study music theory, ear training and keyboard, as well as exploring music from different historic and contemporary periods.
Students enrolled as Visual Arts majors will experience and learn from a wide variety of techniques, styles, and processes, from the traditional to the experimental. Students will have the opportunity to develop skills in drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed-media, sculpture and textiles, while art history is also integrated into the curriculum. At the Grades 11 and 12 level, students interested in post-secondary opportunities in everything from architecture, animation and various design fields are encouraged to enroll.
Langley Fine Arts’ Photography program takes a “fine arts” approach to the medium, as students are encouraged to develop their skills behind the camera by exploring and capturing the world around them. Students are expected to be curious, experiment, and challenge themselves, while also working together to improve their craft.
Creative Writing is a major that offers an inclusive, support environment to help students grow creatively as writers, thinkers, and producers of published work. Students will learn and develop skills in a variety of mediums – from poetry and fiction to web writing, songwriting, journalism and podcasting. Guest speakers are also invited to work with the class, and through a class website, students can post writing and get feedback from both current students and program alumni.
