The Arts at FVS

Since its founding in 1930, the arts have held a special place in the School's life. With a comprehensive course offering in studio arts, theater, music (instrumental and choral), photography and filmmaking, Fountain Valley is a school full of opportunities and inspirations for creative minds. Countless alumni have gone on to build careers in the arts.

Founding faculty Boardman Robinson built the base upon which FVS arts are built. He was a famed artist in his own right, and he also was a founding memory of the Broadmoor Arts Academy, now the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.
