Experience the Arts
Through the pursuit of virtuous artistic endeavors, our students can positively enrich and influence the society in which they live.
The Fine Arts Department at St. David’s School is committed to helping students discover and develop their creative gifts. We believe that every child, as an image-bearer of the Creator God, is born with the capacity to create – through painting a picture, acting a scene, singing a melody, or playing an instrument. In keeping with the school's mission, St. David’s Fine Arts Department expects that as each student's faith develops, their character will then mature, and their knowledge will produce the highest forms of creative expression.
I believe all parents hope their children have the opportunity to develop their God-given talents and reach their potential. This happens in the Fine Arts Department at St. David’s. The outstanding faculty nurture, guide, and challenge their students to appreciate and create beautiful art. parent and Former Fine Arts Boosters President
To nurture these gifts, St. David’s offers an award-winning, comprehensive arts curriculum from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade. Our fine arts specialists provide experiences in visual arts, media production, vocal music, guitar, band instrumental music, and theater arts. Advanced Placement courses, honors courses and independent studies in a variety of fine art mediums round out our curriculum.
Learning is not confined to the classroom; field trips to local colleges and universities, galleries, and museums enhance students’ understanding of the arts. Travel opportunities are made available each year to our performing and visual artists – whether it’s hitting the art museums in New York City; performing in duomos in Venice, Italy; singing at Disney World; or competing with the Wind Ensemble or Middle School Vocal Ensemble in Williamsburg.
God has blessed our St. David’s artists with incredible talent, and we are so happy to offer ample opportunities in which they can share it.
