KINKAID VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS GUIDING PRINCIPLE
Kinkaid Arts provides comprehensive arts experiences and instruction through a student-centered curriculum that fosters collaboration, creativity, and problem solving. Through our energy, focus, and master teachers, we provide artists and audiences an opportunity to learn more about both themselves and others.
VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS
Each Visual and Performing Arts program is sequential, providing opportunities at the introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels, so students may explore new art forms or develop a high level of proficiency in a particular discipline – as best suits their individual needs as developing artists.
In addition to fostering our students’ aesthetic sensibilities and artistic talents, our arts curriculum develops fundamental skills. We teach them how to see, experiment, invent, and imagine in ways that are an inherent part of the creative process. We give them opportunities to move beyond technique and create works rich in emotion, atmosphere, and their own personal voice or vision.
VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS HONOR PROGRAM
In an effort to offer the most “comprehensive arts education” possible, Kinkaid Visual and Performing Arts offers honors courses to Upper School students who wish to exceed the expectations of our core offerings while delving deeper into our curriculum. Students interested in entering the advanced program must demonstrate highly developed skills, an elevated creative drive, and a demonstrated commitment to the arts.
In its simplest form, upon completion of four semesters of arts, students interested in consideration for the honors track must submit a portfolio for review.
