Perhaps like no other discipline, the arts call for introspection and self-reflection. Meaningful artistic expression requires both. And, like no other discipline, artistic interpretations of the world around us evoke emotion and provoke thoughtful discussion about the human spirit. In any intellectual community, the arts are essential.
At Bishop’s, the visual and performing arts are integral to daily life. From introductory classes in middle school to advanced and audition-only programs in upper school, you explore your own creativity under the guidance of practicing artists and, ultimately, become an artist in your own right. In the nurturing environments of the art studios and performance spaces, you shape your vision and clarity. Soon, you are producing works that advance the culture – and conversation – on our campus and in the larger community.
Whether you are a dancer, an actor, a visual or vocal artist or a musician – or you simply aspire to be – we have a space for you. We invite you to make this your creative refuge. Or make it your home. Most of all, we ask that you make it your own, because here, you can unleash your artistic spirit, be transported and find your truest self.
