The Arts program connects students to humanity through hands-on projects that require inquiry, curiosity, correlation, response, and analysis.
At Pennington, being involved with the Arts calls upon both individual and collaborative skill sets. We teach and guide students through creative processes in order 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 Pennington Arts program are empowered with possibilities. While we are proud of the shared experiences they experience in the program, it is the students’ unique perspectives and backgrounds that allow their interests and strengths to guide their exploration of music, theatre, and visual art.
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 Middle School classes explore courses in each of the three disciplines during the school day and related arts activities outside of the daily schedule. 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.
