At Valwood, students are given the opportunity to express themselves creatively through both the performing and visual arts. Students are encouraged to try new techniques, experiment with a new medium, or tackle a new role, all without fear of failure.
Visual art students use their own lives and the natural world for the inspiration behind their drawing, painting, and sculpting, and our teachers value original ideas and experimentation. Classes teach the enjoyment of artistic ability and process, appreciation for the work of others and a sense of pride in one’s own work.
Performance is an integral part of Valwood’s artistic community. The goal of musical and theatrical performances is to achieve growth and enjoyment through our numerous vocal, instrumental, and acting groups. Students learn the values of teamwork and unity in One Act play, chorus, strings, and debate. Student initiative is also highly respected at Valwood, and student artists are given the chance to create new and original works.
We invite you to explore Valwood through our website, but the best way to learn more about our school’s mission and approach is to visit us. We hold admissions coffee-and-tour sessions monthly where you will learn about our curriculum and extracurricular programs, and you will also be able to see first-hand our beautifully designed, state-of-the-art facilities.
