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 opportunity 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.
