So does art imitate life…or life art? At Volunteer State, we know what they have in common. Both require preparation.

Performance, on stage or on canvas, means you have to prepare.

  • Know your lines.
  • Know the subject.
  • Know the composition.
  • If you don't, it will show.

Life requires the same preparation. And that's where we come in. Whether you're interested in art, music or theatre, our visual and performing arts programs will prepare you for the next stage of your life.

Our instruction starts in the classroom, but it leads to performance and exhibit opportunities on campus and out in the community. Our theater students stage productions each semester. Our music students cut CDs and perform in concerts. Student art work is displayed on campus and at other venues. We also have award winning creative writing publications.
