Our Schools

Fine Arts Academy

The MISD Fine Arts Department is proud to welcome our newest fine arts academies at Kenneth Davis Elementary and Cross Timbers Intermediate opening in the fall of 2022. Our state-of-the-art facility and instructional designs will mirror our existing fine arts academies at Brenda Norwood Elementary and Alma Martinez Intermediate, now in their second year.

Our elementary artists will gain exposure to multiple arts disciplines including music, piano, dance, theatre and visual art. At the intermediate level, artists will expand their rigorous study into eight disciplines including band, choir, dance, digital art, piano, orchestra theatre and visual art. Fine arts instruction will also be enhanced by additional performance opportunities and master classes unique to the academy experience.
Based on the Studio Habits of Mind (shown below), our artists will also engage arts-integrated core instruction designed to promote artist creativity, collaboration and critical thinking across all areas of study.
