We were made by a Creator to be creative. At Providence, we believe an environment rich in arts and culture strengthens and supports an education rooted in all that is true, beautiful, and excellent.
Providence students experience a myriad of opportunities to voice and express their creativity and talents in the classroom, on stage, and in the community. It is through these experiences that students learn more about the beauty in Godâ€™s creation and the complexities of human life and relationships. Through art, students learn how to think critically, develop a passion for beauty, and create with imagination.
Preschool and Lower School students learn to sing, play instruments, draw, paint, and speak with confidence. Middle School students survey many visual art forms and advance their performance confidence in theater and choral-singing classes. When students reach Upper School, they are prepared to embrace the required fine arts courses in painting and drawing, to join the Providence Studio, and to continue to use their bodies, minds, and voices in theater and music performing arts classes and productions. Students have additional opportunities to use their musical talents to lead and enhance the chapel worship experience by playing or singing in a worship band.
Our campuses are alive with student art. Our visual artists have frequent opportunities to create and display their drawings, paintings, sculpture, and photography in gallery-like shows. All divisions present programs at Christmas and in the springtime, with additional revues throughout the year.
Theatrical productions may be dramatic or musical or a combination; past productions have included Youâ€™re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, Twelfth Night, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Sound of Music, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Les Miserables, Fiddler on the Roof, and The Music Man. From running the sound booth to designing the stage for the spring drama or musical, Providence thespians participate in the entire theater production process.
