Fine Arts

  • "Southeast Raleigh's fine arts department not only nurtures each student's individual style but also encourages them to explore and push their skills. We have a superb department who are not only highly knowledgeable in their area but are truly passionate about what they teach."

    The Fine Arts department is centered on fostering a creative environment in which students can express themselves and flourish. With courses dedicated to exploring both history and method, students absorb a variety of techniques and experiences that lead them into the 21st-century global world.

    The department partners with some of the nation's most competitive colleges plus local art centers such as NC Museum of Art, Artspace and Visual Art Exchange giving students an edge upon graduation. High technology and high creativity come together to offer students not just more education, but a better and more comprehensive education that's focused upon careers in the digital arts. In addition, it is affiliated with the Digital Arts Career-Focused Learning Community and the National Art Honor Society.

    The Arts Department's newest endeavor is the addition of Adobe CC Certification with Southeast being a testing site for the certification. This year our students will have the opportunity to become certified in the entire Adobe CC suite.

    • Teachers that exhibit art professionally in area shows
    • Two National Board Certified Teachers
