The Arts at Kinkaid 

At Kinkaid, arts education is an integral part of the total school program and has become an essential part of the process for helping students develop their individual voices. All students have learning experiences in musicvisual artsdance and theatre, which encourage them to establish a lifelong commitment to the arts, value the importance of art in the life of the community, and develop the ability to continue arts education independently. To that end, the department provides a variety of programs that offer opportunities for successful art experiences that both meet the needs and interests of our particular student population by promoting understanding and appreciation, but still stressing sequential development and measuring students' accomplishment.

The art education program seeks to achieve Kinkaid's purposes and goals by encouraging students to take creative risks, develop independent thought and creative problem-solving, make discriminatory judgments, develop tolerance and sensitivity toward others, respect the work of their fellow students, and develop an acceptable, productive voice.

We have a strong, dedicated and degreed arts faculty. Most are working artists. All faculty are involved in their professional organizations and attend art workshops and conferences to stay attuned to current methods. They teach on an individual basis, recognizing students with special needs and special talents, often developing original programs.

Kinkaid enjoys creative, motivated and intelligent students. To this end, the School provides financial support for necessary faculty, resources, equipment and materials, e.g. books, videos, and resource people. Additionally, the School provides time for assemblies, speakers, student art performances and displays, and participation in a variety of arts festivals to foster appreciation.
