All Saints Episcopal School is proud to announce the completion of a new Fine Arts Center which is a portion of the campus wide expansion that is underway.

Donors to the expansion project are invited to a preview event on Oct. 17 at 5:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center. The event will include a tour of the newly created fine arts areas, entertainment, a presentation by architect Stan Roberts of Halo Architects, and a hard hat tour of the high school construction site. A special announcement will be made by Headmaster Dr. Mike Bennett regarding the creation of a donor society that will be known as the "High School Founder's Circle."

The 11,400 square foot Fine Arts Center includes three Visual Arts Studios, Choir / Music Hall, Band / Orchestra Hall, and Black Box Theater. Part of the center is space renovated from what was the school's original gymnasium. That space was converted into the theater and music spaces. The art studios are part of the new construction in the hallway leading into the new high school. Each of the spaces has been built with state-of-the-art features representative for each of the disciplines.

Each space is equipped with the latest in educational technology including SmartBoards, document cameras, and big screen digital televisions. The music and theater spaces also include state-of-the-art sound systems. The art studios have two sinks and north facing window walls to allow natural lighting.

All Saints is well-known for its outstanding fine arts curriculum. Students are recognized every year for their excellence in orchestra, band, voice, music, visual art, and theater. Several students currently perform with the Lubbock Youth Symphony Orchestra. Other students perform in local theatrical and dance productions. Students frequently have artwork on display in local galleries and art shows. The school's One Act Play team has been a repeat state qualifier for several years. The students compete in TAPPS and PSIA contests.
