The Arts are a fundamental part of the student experience here at Episcopal.
We believe an arts education can connect students more deeply to the world and open them up to new ways of seeing. Through participating in the arts - whether it’s dance, music, theatre, or visual arts - our students become more aware of the beauty around them, begin to feel empathy for others, learn to communicate their feelings in healthy, productive ways, and grow in their common humanity. The arts can also broaden our students’ perspective on traditional academics, which will help them see meaning and life-long purpose in what we teach.
Research shows that an arts education is closely linked to almost everything we want for our students: academic achievement, social and emotional development, civic engagement, and equitable opportunity. It also shows that participation in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking and verbal skill, and can improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork
The annual Fall All School Student Art Show is now on display in the Visual & Performing Arts Center lobby. The show features 185 works by students from all three divisions and showcases the great works students are producing in their visual arts classes. Works include drawings, paintings, prints, pottery and sculpture, photography, digital and mixed media. Please take the time to come by and view the show which is scheduled to run through November.
We invite you to see the difference a strong artistic foundation can make in the life of your child.
