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 and music, 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 the 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 yet challenging.

King’s stunning state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center (PAC) is an enviable setting for these creative pursuits. The lobby of the (PAC) doubles as extraordinary exhibition space for students, professional artists, and alumni.
