Lower School Arts

Be Creative

Arts are integral to Belmont Day—embedded in the academics and valued by the community. As soon as you walk into the school, you’ll see our students’ artwork. But that’s a mere hint. Between our two art studios, the woodworking studio, music room, and performing arts center, students' exposure to the arts is varied and rich with the goal of promoting life-long appreciation for and involvement in the arts. We recognize students' inherent impulse to create, and we provide a supportive environment that fosters imagination, experimentation, and discovery. 

Students at Belmont Day are immersed in many artistic disciplines. In music, they learn skills to engage in vocal and instrumental performance, and study music appreciation. In performing arts, our students develop as actors and public speakers, and showcase these skills in class productions. In woodworking, students are introduced to basic skills using hand tools, as they utilize concrete and abstract thinking skills. In visual arts, students explore a variety of materials and processes as they sculpt, print, paint, draw, collage, sew, and photograph to turn their thoughts into artworks.
