The Arts: Integrating Creativity
Since God is the God of Beauty who has given us each aesthetic sensibilities and creative gifts, no education is complete without training in the fine arts. All students have weekly classes in music, art and, beginning in 4th grade, drama. Every student performs in at least one play or musical a year.
In the past few years, the Upper School has run the dramatic gamut, with performances ranging from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown.” We also made many a Gilbert and Sullivan aficionado smile with our rendition of “H.M.S. Pinafore.” Not to be outdone, the Lower School has entertained with strong performances of both “The Little Princess” and “The Odyssey.” Moreover, the school choir, which presents the Christmas Lessons and Carols program and sings at the end-of-the-year convocation, is made up of all students in Grades 1-8.
We see these activities as an integral part of an Imago student’s education.
