Welcome to the Creative Arts Division at De Anza College, where the departments of Art, Dance and Theatre, Film/TV, Music, and Photography live.

At De Anza College the arts connect our diverse community, helping everyone find commonality in creative expression. Through the Creative Arts you will find shared values and experiences that bridge cultural, ethnic, and ideological boundaries.
