  • Unparalleled Opportunities

    Individual Self-Expression & Creativity
Fine Arts have been at the core of an MVCDS education since the school's founding in 1884. Providing unparalleled opportunities for individual self-expression and creativity, the Fine Arts curriculum recognizes and nurtures the unique "voice" within every child. At Maumee Valley, students are immersed in the arts through experience.
Maumee Valley students have endless opportunities to explore their creative passions. Students are not passive observers but makers of music, sound, visual art, paintings, sculpture, photography, drama and theatre arts.

Music instruction is a hallmark of Maumee Valley’s fine arts education. Programs include choirs, string ensembles, jazz ensemble, and private lessons.

A wide variety of musical instruments, materials, techniques, concepts, and history are explored in a non-competitive atmosphere that emphasizes discovery and creativity. From the early grades through their senior year, students work with professionally trained teachers who bring their own enriching experiences as artists, musicians, actors, and choreographers to them.
