Lower School

The lower school fine arts program introduces students to a comprehensive array of visual, performing and cultural arts.

The visual arts curriculum builds on drawing, painting and sculptural skills while introducing students to artists from history and basic art theory. Art projects are frequently timed to support cross curricular learning between art and subject area classes. Student work is showcased in the classrooms and also at the lower school arts showcase in the spring.

The performing arts curriculum includes music appreciation, singing and a variety of instruments. Students showcase their skills at the Winter Holiday Concert. The lower school also offers an after-school choral program.

The Hawaiian cultural arts program utilizes a rich curriculum which incorporates chanting, singing, instruments, hula and printmaking on student kihei, or sashes. This yearlong program culminates in the May Day performance each year.
