Arts

At King School, our students are exposed to many forms of creative expression and encouraged to pursue an artistic passion or discover a new one.

King’s Performing Arts program, which includes theater arts, music, and dance, offers students the opportunity to make personal and cultural discoveries by participating in a creative, disciplined and collaborative process. Through a structured communal process, students develop self-confidence, perseverance, imagination, reflective thinking, and intuition.

The Visual Arts program at King School stresses the importance of original creative thinking and personal artistic expression. Students learn to use and manipulate a wide range of media and techniques through assignments that are age appropriate and challenging.  Through King's robust Computer Science & Digital Applications curriculum, students also have the opportunity to explore digital photography, digital animation, and filmmaking. 

King’s stunning state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center (PAC) plus multiple art studios across campus offer tremendous support for students' creative pursuits. The lobby of the (PAC) doubles as extraordinary exhibition space for students, professional artists, and alumni. The Lower School Makerspace and the Middle and Upper School Innovation Lab provide additional opportunities for students to design solutions to real world problems.
