With the guidance of the Lower School faculty, students are exposed to numerous arts opportunities from pre-first through fifth grades. Students discover the joy and satisfaction of expression through acting, performing, singing, creating, and building, solidifying the foundation for lifelong learning and a joyous passion for the arts. We believe exposure to the arts enriches and delights every child in all stages of development.
Our music and art rooms are places of research and discovery where children develop unique voices through an exciting and inspirational investigation of concepts, techniques, and materials.
In addition to music classes and theatre arts integration, Westminster’s Lower School students have the opportunity to participate in band, chorus, and orchestra. These music groups cultivate comprehensive musicianship that culminates in numerous performances.
DRAWING IN ART CLASS
As part of a year-long interdisciplinary project about "Birds of Westminster," first grade students spent time in art class drawing chickens. The chickens were hatched in science classes, then relocated to "Cluck Hall," a chicken coop located behind the Lower School.
