The Fine Arts Program has been at Ferris since 1997. It consists of a visual arts program, which includes drawing and painting, and a theater program consisting of play writing/acting and staging.

The programs are funded through the combined efforts of the Department, the Committee of Education, Art, Etc. and private funding through grants.
