The Fine Arts Division presents instruction in Music, Theatre Arts & Cinema, Visual Arts, Photography and Digital Arts. 

With a variety of programs in the visual and performing arts, students have the opportunity to study traditional and emerging techniques and applications: from drawing, painting, and design, to choral and instrumental performance, to acting, directing, and theatre & video production.  Students develop critical skills while sharpening creative inquiry, and deepening empathy – for the self and others.  The fine arts programs at Hartnell strike an essential balance between local culture, needs, and interests, and global application, evolving with contemporary developments while maintaining a strong foundational basis in traditional Fine and Performing Arts.
