The vibrancy of our art program is on full display in our studios and on our stages. Students are encouraged at every level to make art with energy and passion. Our outstanding facilities speak to the high premium our school places on the pursuit of excellence in the arts. Students are offered a wide range of opportunities – from an active, hands-on experience in our innovative freshman courses to an advanced exploration of sophisticated concepts in our AP level art courses. Our teachers are working artists. Our students consistently win more art awards than any other independent school in Massachusetts.
Both the casual and serious art student find a place in our visual and performing arts program. Art is considered a verb in many of our classes – we encourage students to take creative risks, to become fully alert and to remain endlessly curious. We want students to experience the magic and power of art. Whether that experience occurs at a potter’s wheel, inside a viewfinder, at an easel, on a stage, or at a piano is less important than that it happens completely and often. Students involved in the arts at The Governor’s Academy stand a very good chance of finding themselves entirely captivated by the process of making art.
