In the Fine/Visual Arts, students creatively express themselves at every level. Beginning in Junior Kindergarten, they are exposed to the Classics, take field trips to the National Gallery of Art, and have opportunities to display their projects in the hall or in on-campus galleries. Each year, our entire community is invited to participate in Wakefield’s Art Show which produces a fantastic exhibition. A leadership opportunity is offered to Upper School students each year through our award-winning literary art magazines, Amulet and Talisman, featuring students’ works from each division.
Articulation and confidence are two qualities we strive for at Wakefield School and the Performing Arts Program aids students in achieving these goals. Through local and international performances, speeches, and concerts, the students are given platforms to build communication skills in a fun, friendly, and safe environment. Some of the unique events include: Thespian International Troup, CAPPIES Team, Winter Community Musical, 2017 Performance at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.
