Arts Department

The arts curriculum provides a wide selection of opportunities in both the performing and visual arts. In line with the Oldfields philosophy, the School fosters the creative potential in every student by nurturing her appreciation for the arts and helping her to find her artistic niche. The School’s excellent art facilities include expansive, naturally lit art studios, a wet darkroom, a state-of-the-art digital lab, spacious dance studio, and the beautiful David Niven Theatre. Each student is responsible for taking one year of fine arts (performing or visual arts). Beginning with the class of 2023, two years of fine arts will be required within the same discipline---for example, 2 years of dance.

Students have many opportunities to showcase their talents through gallery exhibits both on and off campus, recitals, plays, shows, and club activities. They are also exposed to a wide variety of performers, speakers, and off-campus experiences.

A highlight of the program is Arts Days, when students experience visual and performing art workshops and demonstrations for the whole school featuring performances by professional artists, dancers, and performance troupes. Arts Days occur twice per year, once in the fall trimester and once in the spring trimester. The second Arts Day culminates with everyone’s favorite, a student talent show.

Private music lessons are also available for those students seeking training in areas outside our curriculum.
