Developing Creative Thinkers

Fine Arts

The Fine Arts Department of St. Stephen's Episcopal School seeks to activate the creative sensibilities of every member of the boarding and day school community.

Experience in the arts promotes positive self awareness in both the context of our community experience and the celebration of our diverse cultural heritage. The faculty nourishes students by providing a variety of opportunities for artistic expression, the study and criticism of the arts, and exposure to the arts on and off campus.  Involvement in art, music, theatre, and dance sharpens perception and critical judgment, and enlivens the exploration of other disciplines.

The Fine Arts program serves the entire St. Stephen's community, providing a comprehensive foundation for those who choose to become arts professionals, who participate for their own enjoyment, and who serve as active members of the arts audience.
