Creative Art is a semester long class where students interact with all of the arts emphasis areas offered by the Pomona Arts and Humanities program.

During hands-on workshops, students in any emphasis area can unleash their inner artist and discover ways to enliven their artistry through techniques that not only meet the Colorado Model Content Standards, but require students to engage, question and collaborate, all areas consistent with the mission of Pomona High School. Further, when students hone their creativity, they become critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, and become positive contributors in the community. Creative Art nurtures these qualities.
