Emmanuel’s Creative and Performing Arts Program is a core element of our curriculum. It gives students
opportunities to showcase their special gifts and talents beyond academic performance. We offer choral
music, dance, drama, mime and visual arts. Emmanuel provides the community with thoughtful celebrations and
unique activities, such as Christmas and Black History programs, art shows and musical concerts, which enhance
the overall school curriculum by exposing students to the world of creative arts.
Dramatic Arts education is an important means of generating creativity in problem solving in our learners. It challenges their perception about the world. Dramatic exploration can provide students with an outlet for emotions, thoughts, and dreams that they might not otherwise have means to express. Tryouts and practices is held after school.

Art and the visual arts are part of the historical record of every culture and historical period known to human beings. It may be said that all we know about some past civilizations is found entirely in the record of art and artifacts their people left behind. The visual arts have been used to capture and express a wide array of values, beliefs, and ideas embraced by people from around the world and from every period of history. The visual arts have been used to educate, persuade, commemorate, and problem solve. In fact daily we are dependent upon the visual arts to make sense of the world in which we live.
Music education is so important is that it integrates so many different subject areas all at once. Not only will music education allow children to develop their musical skills, it will also give them the opportunity to work on their math skills, reading and writing skills.
It is the physical expression through movement, rhythm and feelings. Emmanuel learners uses dance to express their praise to God. These processes requires our learners to use critical thinking skills and excel in nonverbal communication. They work collaboratively to develop kinesthetic and spatial learning.
