Visual and Performing Arts

crayonartOne of the first things many visitors notice when walking through our building for the first time is the tremendous amount of student produced art we have on display. For many students at The Piedmont School, nothing inspires them more than the opportunity to build and create. 

We know the value of self expression and we encourage our students to express their creativity and individuality. One way we encourage our students to do this is through Drama and Art classes.

Every TPS student, K-8th grade, participates in Art (Tues. & Thurs) and Drama (Wed & Fri) classes twice a week where they learn not only about art history, sculpting, painting, drawing, theatre, plays, musicals, and techniques but also about communication, self expression and individuality.

Our students participate in several mini-performances throughout the year from art and talent showcases, to lip syncing performances, to participation in our whole school musical in the spring. The whole school musical is a highlight of every school year. Every student k-8th participates in this performance each year. Students are a main part of the creative process and participate in set design and construction, technical responsibilities, as well as performing. We know that live performance is not for everyone so students also learn about “behind the scenes” roles in the theatre world. Previous performances include The Lion King, Seussical The Musical, Aladdin Jr., and Wonka Jr. These opportunities help our students come out of their shells and become comfortable in many different situations.
