Let the arts develop your child's ability to think creatively and solve open-ended problems and develop skills needed in the world of work and play. Deerfield Park's Performing and Visual Arts Magnet Program allows students to communicate ideas and feelings through music, art, theater arts and dance. Through the arts, children solve problems using their special talents. Our goal is for students to enrich their lives through an understanding and enjoyment of the arts.
