Washington Academy’s arts programs are designed to challenge the creative and expressive powers of all students, from the gifted artist to those trying for the first time to shape a bowl on a potter’s wheel, act on stage, or perform in a choral ensemble. Each student must take one credit in the visual and performing arts, but opportunities to pursue art extend far beyond the classroom.
• The Fine Arts Wing houses both an art studio and music room. The art room is equipped with a potters wheel and kiln, areas for painting and sculpture, and supplies for printmaking. The music room is set up with tiered risers facing the conductor/instructor. The Academy has a baby grand piano, various instruments, and a full steel drum set for the aspiring musician.
• The WA Players showcase the dramatic talents of the school’s theatrical department through fall and spring productions.
• For those more technologically inclined students, WA offeres a creative outlet through Computer Aided Drafting and Video Production and Broadcasting.
Whatever your artistic bent, Washington Academy provides a creative outlet for expression.
