艺术

Discover new ways of expressing yourself.


The Visual and Performing 艺术 are an integral part of the Walker’s community. 创造力、沟通和协作是我们校园所有艺术的基础.

通过艺术, 学生们学会了承担风险, push beyond perceived boundaries, and discover new ways of expressing themselves and engaging with the community. 

对艺术有热情的学生可以参加表演等课外活动, 技术剧院, 跳舞, and visual arts during all three seasons. 除了, students can participate in private voice and instrumental lessons, and perform in vocal and instrumental ensembles. There are so many opportunities for students to perform and showcase their art work. There are several main stage music, 剧院, and 跳舞 performances as well as art galleries throughout campus. Student performances and art work are part of daily life at Walker’s.

艺术课程强调技能发展和自我驱动、体验式学习. 数码摄影课程, 电影及录像制作, 艺术工作室, 艺术历史, 陶瓷, 跳舞, 音乐, 和戏剧, as well as Independent Studies in all areas, 让学生在发现表达自己的新方法的同时,深入钻研各种艺术形式. All students have an 艺术 requirement, 但学生们经常会找到一份对他们有帮助的表格,然后继续学习,超过了最低学分. Formative assessments are used throughout every visual and performing arts class. 学生 are given immediate feedback throughout the lesson, 其中包括建议, 选项, 和参与对话. 来自同行和教师的批评性和建设性的反馈衡量了创造性过程和最终产品的有效性.

艺术 students are taught to be leaders by choreographing, 作曲, 策划, 和助理教. 学生 participate in arts-related community partnerships, such as Children’s 跳舞 classes, 美中不足的比赛, 记忆项目, and the Connecticut Inclusive 艺术 program. 在BB平台的, 我们培养学生超越自我,找到利用艺术回报社会和改变世界的方法.
