The focus for our younger students is to discover and celebrate their artistic and expressive abilities. Students are guided through artmaking, musical explorations, and creative movement tailored and sequenced to support their early childhood development. By exploring a wide variety of tools, materials, and diverse styles and genres, students develop their love for the arts and hone their gross and fine motor skills, as well as their abilities to concentrate, persevere, and collaborate.
The focus for our older students is to further realize their creative potential and advancing their artistic literacies within the arts and interdisciplinarily. Visual arts courses collaborate with design science to develop students’ investigations and sensitivity to the elements of art, principles of design, how to understand patterns, and make predictions. Performing arts students continue honing their musicianship with classes emphasizing performance skills and musical literacy, expanding their instrumentation, vocal abilities, and musical complexity through sequenced levels of repertoire.
