Arts at The New School

Here at The New School, we have a rich tradition in the arts. Education at The New School has always been about allowing children to creatively express themselves through drama, music, art, and dance, and I am excited to focus my time and energy on our very special, ever-growing arts program.

From our Early Childhood students singing down the hallway with Mr. Troy to our Upper School students learning graphic design with Ms. Aaron, we have something for everyone. In the mornings a group of Lower School musicians can be heard singing and playing instruments in Ms. Becky’s classroom for The Morning Jam or in the  afternoons our Middle and Upper School students practice Rock Band with Mr. Austin and Mr. Jacob in the recently renovated Arts Annex.

Children fill the Early Childhood studio with their amazing works of art with help from Ms. Christina and Ms. Natalie, while our Lower and Middle School artists paint, draw and create with Ms. Katie and Ms. Shelby. Students beginning in Pre-Kindergarten all the way up to 5th grade spend time rehearsing plays on the stage with Ms. Sam and Ms. Jonny. 

Ms. Michelle has returned to lead our after-school dance program, adding Street Dance, Ballet and Tap to our repertoire. TNS offers piano, guitar and drumming private music lessons with end of year recitals during Arts Week in late April. Our Art teachers also offer after-school arts program includes Ceramics, Drama Club, Ukulele Ensemble, Outdoor Art-Ventures, Art Studio and Art with Christina.

The Arts are alive and well at The New School, and we invite you to be our audience!
