At St. Margaret's Episcopal School, we believe that everyone is on an artistic journey. Through experiences in the visual arts, music, dance, theater and technical arts, students discover and nurture the artists within. As students from preschool through Upper School are introduced to the fundamentals of the art forms, they learn how to learn. An arts education at St. Margaret's develops 21st Century Learning Skills, supports all core subjects, creates empathy, builds bridges and helps develop voice and vision.
The arts are thriving at St. Margaret's. Through many artistic endeavors, students celebrate their own work and the work of their peers and their artistic experiences connect them to generations of artists and audiences. The transforming power of the arts is vividly experienced as students explore their talents as playwrights, directors, actors, technical crew members, costume and make up designers, graphic designers, studio artists, photographers, choreographers, composers, literary artists and more. As the artists' skills increase through practice, they become comfortable in viewing their - and others' - work in the arts as a journey, not as a destination.
The St. Margaret's Arts Faculty consists of dedicated professional arts educators, all of whom maintain an active professional life in the arts in addition to their work with our students.
