Visual and Performing Arts
We believe the arts enrich the lives of our community. In our Upper School, Quarry Lane offers a unique and robust visual and performing arts program to students of all levels and interests. The Upper School visual and performing arts program provides a comprehensive experience focusing on students' creative expression as well as their technical abilities.
The Upper School Visual Arts program provides students with opportunities for a deeper, more focused exploration of fine art. Students are guided in the development of self-expression, artistic process, technical ability, creative problem solving and an understanding of the principals and elements of design.
For students in the IB Diploma Progamme, the IB Visual Arts program challenges students to push their creative boundaries and cultural expectations while also developing their analytical skills and technical proficiency. Students in the IB Visual Arts program will require students to explore and analyze artwork from differing cultural contexts, comparing works by developing connections through both form and meaning. In addition, students are expected to engage in and experiment with a with a variety of contemporary practices and mediums.
