Meet our Fine Arts Department
The Classical Center at Vial has a phenomenal Fine Arts Department. We have a combined 66 years of fine arts teaching experience. We invite you to take a moment and get to know our Fine Arts Department.
Maker Creator Day
Our first Maker Creator Day is on Monday, April 27. Get creative! Students can create interactive art projects, jewelry, Lego Creations, robots, crafts, and much more! To enter this event, students need to bring a blueprint, their creation, a story on how they created this masterpiece, and a presentation ready to share with classmates. Let your creative juices flow. Be safe and have fun. We can't wait to see what our talented students create.

We are published authors!
Classical Center at Vial students spent a great deal of class time writing and illustrating their own books. Those books have arrived! They have been professionally bound and look amazing. We will be celebrating our newly published authors with our annual Classical Center at Vial Author Day on Tuesday, April 28. Students will have opportunities to share their creations with classmates. Teachers are planning a special day of sharing. Students will be able to bring their books home that evening. Congratulations to all of our newly published authors!
