Arts

The creative and performing arts hold a vibrant place in a Thaden education and the life of our school. All students take courses in the arts that are designed to instill a life-long appreciation for the creative process. Through interdisciplinary engagement with music, painting, sculpture, drama, dance, and film, students can deepen and enlarge their powers of creativity and personal expression, often addressing complex social questions and issues.

Grades 6-8

Middle School students take a trimester of music, theater, and visual art. Each course allows them to practice medium-specific activities, such as exploring rhythm through body percussion, rehearsing and staging short theatrical scenes, and developing and presenting drawing and painting projects.

Grades 9-12

Students may choose from various visual, music, and performing art courses as part of their two years (6 Trimesters) requirements for graduation.

All Grades

After-school art opportunities include clubs, performances, and art showcases.
