How do you craft a well-rounded education? With clay? Through watercolors? In three-part harmony? Yes, yes, and yes. The Dawson arts program gives exceptional depth and richness to our student’s learning experience and is a priority within our educational program.
Students are introduced to and work with an array of media starting in kindergarten. Middle school students are exposed to more advanced arts classes, including Ceramics, Graphic Design, and Woodworking, and in Upper School, there are numerous arts electives in both performing and visual arts. Combat Theater, Musical Ensembles, Ceramics, Jewelry Making, Digital Art, and Woodworking are just a few.
Students are encouraged to explore as many areas as possible across fine arts, digital arts, music, and performing arts. Our goal is to expose all students to as many creative concepts as possible, develop an appreciation for the arts, and nurture those students with a desire to take their artistic passions beyond Dawson.
