St. Charles Parish Public Schools’ 14th annual ArtsFest event features representative performances and presentations from 67 programs at 16 schools and learning centers.  In their arts classes, students use a variety of artistic media to independently create and perform work that expresses and communicates their own ideas.  An SCPPS arts education prepares students to know and understand artwork from varied historical periods and cultures, to actively seek and appreciate diverse forms and genres of artwork, to find joy through engagement in all of the arts, to seek artistic experiences into adulthood, and to support the arts in their communities.
