Students enjoy programs representing a wide variety of the arts including music, dance, painting, writing (creative writing, expository writing, and poetry - including many visiting authors), theater arts, storytelling, and more. The bulk of our programming consists of hands-on workshops which emphasize student participation and active learning.

Each year, we sponsor Arts Field Day, which is an opportunity for children in 3rd through 5th grades to experiment with different art forms and learn from professional artists. They can enroll in workshops to learn more about painting, musical theater, robotics, dance, and much more! This year's Arts Field Day will be held outdoors for our 5th-grade students on May 11, 2021. 5th graders can select from workshops in acrylic painting, improv, tai chi, kung fu, magic, Chinese brush painting, yoga, and hip hop.
