Charles Wright’s Lower School music and visual arts programs are exceptional. For Lower School students, art is very much about process, not product. Students explore working with different art materials and enjoy identifying patterns. Our Art faculty teach students that art is a way of seeing, and that artists see things differently. Art is about noticing how things look and developing your artistic vision. Additionally, students have the opportunity for lunchtime and after school art programs as an enrichment program.
Music classes are filled with song, dance, and laughter. Children develop basic music skills through experience — both singing and playing instruments. They are introduced to the skills of reading and writing music. The Lower School concerts are some of the most popular events of the school year. Additionally, private piano lessons are offered on campus during or after the school day as an enrichment program and periodic partnerships with outside vendors for enrichment programs in theater and dance are offered.
