    Programs and Services:

    The Fulton County Schools Fine Arts Department supports more than 400 music, theatre arts, dance and visual arts teachers and 94,000 students within its K-12 programs.

    Fine arts instruction in the Fulton County Schools is standards-driven, sequential, substantive and comprehensive. Every elementary school student receives weekly art and music classes.

    Middle school students receive visual art and theatre as options for quarterly Connection courses and music students have year long band, orchestra and choral programs. At the high school level there are several fine arts elective choices that fulfill the GA Career Pathway requirements and culminate in five Advanced Placement courses.

    The Fine Arts Department is led by two coordinators. Music is lead by Matthew Koperniak. Visual art, dance, and theatre is led by Betsy Eppes. Both coordinators have outstanding teams of Fine Arts Support Teachers (FAST).
