Department of Fine Arts
The North Tonawanda City School District’s Department of Fine Arts is comprised of the Visual and Performing Arts programs.
". . . the arts have been an inseparable part of the human journey; indeed, we depend on the arts to carry us toward the fullness of our humanity. We value them for themselves, and because we do, we believe knowing and practicing them is fundamental to the healthy development of our children's minds and spirits. That is why, in any civilization - ours included - the arts are inseparable from the very meaning of the term 'education.' We know from long experience that no one can claim to be truly educated who lacks basic knowledge and skills in the arts."

NT Students represented our district at the Junior Area All State Festival in Akron. Our kids were selected by audition for this honors festival. This is the equivalent to winning a Sectional sporting event. These kids are awesome.
CONGRATULATIONS to Mrs. Knight and the Art Alive students for winning the 2023 AKG People's Choice Awards for their age category. We are so proud. More pictures on the picture page!
