Elk Rapids High School prides itself on having a strong fine arts program.

Here we offer a wide range of courses such as Art IA and IIA (Drawing), Art IB and IIB (Painting), Pottery I (Functional and Sculptural Pottery), Multicultural Arts and Crafts, and Honors Art I and II. We also offer the oppertunity for advanced students to join our National Arts Honors Society. NAHS is a group of students that work together to set up art shows, travel to art museums and study artists work, and work on other school related projects.

Samples of students work can be viewed at:
