Visual & Performing Arts
Communication, collaboration, and creative thinking — these are the skills students cultivate through our Visual & Performing Arts curriculum.
Pencil in hand, a Visual Art student sketches, shapes, and sharpens ideas into fruition. On stage, an actor in a Theatre class pays careful attention to the ways gesture, posture, expression, and voice speak to his audience. Each member of our Orchestra spends class keying into the musicians around him, and together they seek a unity in their sound.
Our freshman year arts requirement ensures that every student at Prep gets to have experiences such as these. Having had exposure to this sort of work, many of our students elect to continue their studies in the arts throughout their time here. Working in these disciplines affords our students the valuable opportunity to take a leap and learn from the failures and successes of process.
At Fairfield Prep, we foster a lifelong love of learning through a lifelong love of the arts.
Mr. Daniel Horstmann
