The Visual and Performing Arts Program at Stuart provides outstanding arts curriculum with an emphasis on essential skill building, design and process-based education using innovative technology, visual and performing art history, aesthetics, and critical thinking.
We strongly believe the arts are vital as an essential academic experience for the achievement of human, social, and aesthetic growth. The program embraces all learning styles, cultural intelligence, encouraging teamwork, creative problem solving, and fostering leadership skills at all grade levels.
The mission of the Arts Department at Stuart Country Day School of the Sacred Heart is to create Art. Experience and knowledge of the Arts is a vital part of education. The Arts are rich disciplines that include a vibrant history, an exemplary body of work to study, and compelling traditions. An education in the Arts is essential for the achievement of human, social and economic growth. The education of our students in dance, music, drama, and visual art is critical to their success. The arts offer tools for personal expression, intellectual, and social development.
"The Arts provide an opportunity to express, invite, comment and affirm the Human condition through aesthetic understanding.” - Jan Baldwin, Arts Faculty
