Visual & Performing Arts

Raoul Wallenberg High School offers music and visual arts as class electives.  We also have active drama and dance clubs. The community spring arts festival Wallapalooza highlights student visual and performing arts.  

 

Visual Art

Visual Art is a yearlong course designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of the visual arts. The first semester will be devoted to developing and strengthening painting, drawing and sculptural skills as well as the understanding and appreciation of art through projects that foster creative expression and experimentation. By the end of Art, students will have a greater grasp on the foundational world of art which will be developed further in more concentrated units during the second semester.

 

Computer Art

Computer Art is a yearlong course designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of communications design. Students will develop both their skills on paper and digitally, exploring the creative process of making images that can move ideas and information to the minds of others.

 

Sculpture

Sculpture is a yearlong course designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of three-

dimensional design. Students will learn how the elements and principles of art apply to the

dynamic world of sculpture, and explore a variety of sculptural techniques including modeling,

carving, casting, construction and assemblage, as well as environmental installations.

 

Music

Symphonic Band combines beginning and advanced wind and string players.  Both Advanced & Beginning Bands works under the guidance of Ms. Segal together with SF Symphony and SF Conservatory coaches.  Advanced band performs in public with Mercury Soul under the direction of esteemed composer Mason Bates.  Both bands perform at "Wallapalooza," Wallenberg's spring arts festival and at the SFUSD Spring Arts Festival.

 

Pop/Rock Band students spend the first semester learning basic music theory, piano keyboard, guitar, bass & drums.  During the second semester, students select a primary instrument and break into small bands where they will rehearse self-selected songs to perform at "Wallapalooza," Wallenberg's spring arts festival.

 

Jazz Band is an after school club for all grades of students who already can read and have an interest in ensemble playing and improvising.  Jazz Band performs at assemblies and city-wide events such as Carnaval and the Dreamforce conference. 

 

Ukulele Club is an after school club for all grades of students at any level who like to, or would like to, play ukulele with others. Ukulele Club performs at assemblies and at Wallapalooza.
