At Dublin we believe the arts are an essential part of a well-rounded education. The arts celebrate the specificities of individual talent as well as the communal effort inherent in the synthesis of a work of art, performance or exhibition. The arts speak directly to our mission as we expect all students to exhibit curiosity, courage, and seek truth.
The Arts Department offers courses in visual arts, music, dance, poetry, film and theatre. We serve both experienced, passion-driven young artists and students with little or no previous exposure to arts education by offering a curriculum based on a “spiraling” model, with flexibility for a multi-level approach within each classroom.
We challenge and nurture our students as they take risks, explore divergent, non-linear ways of thinking, and grapple with problems that have multiple solutions. Through the arts, students are exposed to multiple modalities through which one may experience the world around and within them. Learning in, about and through the arts develops each leaner’s capacity to make meaning from experience and knowledge, respond to creativity, celebrate diversity and contribute to society.
Our arts faculty is comprised of committed educators who are also working artists themselves within their respective fields. We actively seek out enrichment opportunities that will expose our students to contemporary and classic work through field trips to professional performances, private lessons, masterclasses, and guest artists who present and speak about their work.
