Arts

The philosophy of arts at
The Pennington School

caption
Personal creativity and an appreciation of it in others is important for students today and throughout their lives.

The Arts program connects students to humanity through hands-on projects that require inquiry, curiosity, correlation, response, and analysis. The program calls upon both individual and collaborative skill sets. We teach and guide students through creative processes to think critically, connect to and create story, to identify and participate in human commonalities, as well as to make sense of and express their understanding of the world.

Students in the Middle School enjoy exploratory courses in each of the three disciplines during the school day and related arts activities outside of the daily schedule.

The Pennington Arts program prepares students for careers that require the skill sets listed above and participation in the arts as both avocation and vocation. The upper level classes and extracurricular activities provide students with the necessary skills and experiences to pursue the arts at the college level and beyond.
