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 Art and Design program at King School stresses the importance of original creative thinking and personal artistic expression. Students learn to use a wide range of art media, techniques, and design concepts through assignments that are age appropriate and challenging. A wide variety of traditional art classes are offered as well as digital media, including photography, animation, and filmmaking. Each class culminates in an OPEN project , which stands for Original, Personal, Experienced, and Novel. Students independently apply their learning by creating an original project of personal significance, becoming experienced through practice while exploring novel ideas and applications.
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.
