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. 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.

All through the day young musicians can be heard singing and playing instruments in Ms. Ashley's classroom, and our middle and upper students jam with Mr. Austin in the Arts Annex. Children fill the Early Childhood Studio and Outdoor 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. Lauren. Students beginning in Pre-Kindergarten all the way up to 12th grade rehearse plays and take acting and stagecraft classes with Ms. Rachel and me on the stage. Second and third graders have creative movement in the dance studio with Ms. Adrienne once a week, who also offers musical theatre, ballet, tap, and gymnastics after school. TNS has piano, guitar, voice, violin, ukulele and drumming music lessons with end of year recitals in April during Arts Month, and our teachers also offer after-school arts programs including Rock Band, Choir, Outdoor Art-Ventures, Ukulele and Recorder. 

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