Fine Arts Mission Statement

The mission of ALA Eagles Band is to achieve the highest standards of music education and performance; and to instill in our students the concepts of the significant role music plays in the cultural, intellectual, and social lives of young adults;

to foster RESPECT, fellowship and goodwill among its members; inspire students to strive for personal ACCOUNTABILITY and INTEGRITY; promote SERVICE by providing music in our community; and provide its membership with opportunities for personal EXCELLENCE, growth and leadership.

They say, art is in the eye of the beholder.  At GNHS, we strive to help student grow and develop their artistry through varied media and coursework.  Students can take Art as an elective in both Junior and Senior High School.  Furthering their study,  they can continue their skill development with electives in Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture.  Digital art mediums are unearthed within CTE coursework in Digital Photography and Graphic Design.   Student masterpieces are showcased throughout the year in our hallways and during both Winter and Spring Fine Arts Performances.

Andre Mossman

André Mossman

André Mossman received his Bachelors in Fine Arts from San Jose State University with an emphasis in Illustration and Animation. Nestled in the heart of the Silicon Valley, the Illustration/Animation program at San Jose State is one of the best kept secrets for the entertainment industry by providing recruits to work in the film and video game fields. Much of his work experience has been in the print industry. He has created artwork for t-shirts, business cards, souvenirs, vehicle wraps, brochures, banners, signs, and various other products.  Andre has been privileged to work on projects involved with Disney, Marvel, Nascar, the National Hockey League, Major League Baseball, and the National Football League.

Mr. Mossman also has a Masters in Science in Graphic Information Technology from Arizona State University with an emphasis in Web Design.

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and 4 children as well as working on personal art projects. He likes to read science fiction books as well as enjoy pretty much any movie with action in it. Mr. Mossan was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and has also lived in Texas, Florida, California, Utah, and Arizona. You can view samples of his work at:

Justin Tolman

I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from Utah State University with an emphasis in Sculpture. In addition to sculpture and other three-dimensional arts, I have many years of experience working with a wide variety of two-dimensional media.

While attending Utah State University I worked on numerous commissions for museums and private collectors throughout the state including the University Department of Geology. These commissions focused primarily upon Paleoart including three Utahraptor sculptures and mural, a Pteranodon, a Dilophosaurus, and a Stegosaurus. My favorite was the commission to recreate a 1/3 scale Utahraptor as a permanent addition to the Utah State University Department of Geology Museum.

In my spare time I love spending time hiking, camping, and backpacking outdoors with my wife. We have made a personal goal to visit and hike all of the National Parks in the United States. I also have a passion for film and love going to movies with friends and family. As a teacher at the American Leadership Academy I have loved inspiring the creativity in children of all ages. Art is magic, and has the ability to heal the body, mind, and soul. Never stop creating!

Besides being a 3D artist, Scot has spent the last few years developing his skills as a graphic designer. He is passionate about what he does and loves learning new things. He also enjoys sharing and teaching what he has learned with others, which is one of the reasons why he became a teacher.
