The Power of Creativity

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, music, and dance, offers students the opportunity to make personal and cultural discoveries by participating in a creative, disciplined, and inquiry-based process. Through a collaborative experience, students develop self-confidence, perseverance, imagination, reflective thinking, and intuition. 

The Art and Design program at King School is a comprehensive curriculum including a wide variety of visual art classes, digital media, photography, animation, fashion design, filmmaking, and more.  The program emphasizes 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 engaging and challenging.
