Today’s students.
Tomorrow’s leaders.


Berkeley High Art Department has been at Berkeley High school since its beginning in the 1880’s. The arts have always been a place for students to express themselves, create, and challenge the limits of what is possible. The arts offerings at Berkeley High are more established and showcase the benefit of having a strong community support from BSEP and CTE funds. The visual and performing arts continue a long tradition of helping students find their voices, and their ability to change the world through their visual ideas. Students go on to study in some of the most prestigious universities and art schools, win fellowships, create music, perform across the world, and showcase the talented creativity that Berkeley High students and alumni are known for.
