ArtQuest at Santa Rosa High School is an award-winning specialized public high school magnet program in the visual and performing arts developed for students for whom creativity and artistic expression is of paramount importance.
As part of the well known, comprehensive Santa Rosa High School, and in the heart of artistically rich and diverse Sonoma County, ArtQuest offers an "above and beyond" experience in the Visual and Performing Arts. At ArtQuest, the passion, commitment and discipline of the Arts is connected to the energy of academic study; inspired by guest artists; enlarged by meaningful off-site visits, exhibits and performances; enriched by its proximity to Santa Rosa Junior College, the Sonoma County Museum and numerous other nearby cultural organizations; and nurtured by generous parent, community and business support.
ArtQuest is a place where students, from all over Sonoma County and beyond, come together as young artists to exhibit, perform and begin to build their dreams into realities; and to pursue artful lives, wherever they may lead.
ArtQuest is a true artistic learning community, devoted to the development of creative problem solving, critical thinking skills, responsibility, accountability, discipline, focus, and community-mindedness. ArtQuest works to nurture opportunities to experience camaraderie and excitement about learning, and envisions school as a place that can and should be filled with dynamic and compelling discoveries. At ArtQuest students are challenged to be both artists and scholars in the broadest sense.
At ArtQuest, the Arts ARE Academic.
ArtQuest offers eight Arts Specialties:
A student produced documentary which explores
the eight specialties in the ArtQuest program.
An ArtQuest Feeling
A student produced music video which provides
a look into the spirit of the ArtQuest program.
