Performing Arts Faculty Amy Darnton and Grade 8 student Gouri Krishnan discuss the power of theatre as the Middle School rehearses C.S. Lewis' classic 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' which opens at the PAC next week. The benefits of stepping into character, collaborating with peers across the Middle School and performing on stage in front of an audience has a broad impact on life outside of the theater.
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.
The Visual Arts department is excited to announce Michael De Feo as King's Visiting Artist for October 2018. Mr. De Feo will address the entire Upper School at an assembly on Monday, October 1. By then, students in all three divisions will have taken self-portrait photos which we will print in various sizes. Students, under the direction of Mr. De Feo, will paint flowers and leaves on top of their portraits with acrylic paint. These works will be exhibited in the PAC.
