Visual & Performing Arts
The Visual and Performing Arts are characterized by a rich and active history at The Knox School. We believe that the Arts are an essential element in our lives. To facilitate this understanding, we continue to take advantage of all of the rich resources around us. In doing so, we hope to build a positive sense of “place” for the Arts in the students’ daily lives both now and as adults. As a department, we hope to instill an appreciation of the arts by building a stronger sense of self through awareness, relaxation, expression and confidence. As human beings, we are forever enriched by the arts and the artists who dare to create.
Visual Arts students have regular opportunities to show their work, whether in our on-campus gallery (The Solarium at Houghton Hall) or other local galleries. Performing Arts students share their projects, their voices, and their scenes with the Knox Community in various showcases throughout the year. Students with an interest in applying their performing skills to theatrical production have the opportunity to join Knox Theatre.
