Discovering the Creative Self

  • Stanley students participate formally in four branches of artistic expression: music, dance, theater and visual arts. Instruction and expression in Stanley art classes are child-directed explorations. Ask young and older students alike, you'll hear the same themes of instruction followed by limitless exploration. This ethic comes from our curricular goals for art students: 

    1. Use courage, self-confidence, voice, skills and knowledge to visually, musically, dramatically, physically communicate and respond to the world through art
    2. Expression through the arts with intent, purpose and thoughtfulness
    3. Understand that art is an element of everyday life and learning
