Lower School Fine Arts

Students in the Lower School receive outstanding instruction in visual art and music. The historical time periods are studied on a five-year rotation and are incorporated school-wide through the arts. Of the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary periods, the year 2012-2013 will focus on the Classical time period (1750-1800). Music productions and artwork created will reflect these qualities, composers, and artists.

  • Students in Kindergarten through fifth grade participate in drama and music performances.
  • Music classes follow the Kodaly based method with Orff and Suzuki. Twice per week, grades first through fifth participate in music class.
  • Art and Music have a coordinated curricula on a five year cycle, running from the medieval era through the twentieth century.
