The Arts at Saint George's

In our Arts program, we inspire each student to perform and grow creatively. Students at Saint George’s School develop their creative abilities in many ways. During our annual celebration of the arts, you’ll find drawings, paintings, collages, photographs, and ceramics lining the halls, choirs singing out, writers reading their own stories, and drama students performing sketches from plays!

These exuberant colors and thought-provoking images are the product of a carefully crafted curriculum. Saint George’s students begin their artistic journey in the Lower School’s classrooms with fun, hands-on projects. Getting artistic evolves further in the Lower School’s new Arts Building, where a bright, open gallery also highlights the latest drawings or 3-D creations.

Middle School students broaden their horizons under the guidance of teachers who have years of experience teaching and guiding creativity. By the time they reach Upper School, our students are reaching challenging artistic goals. They earn regional awards for their artwork and musical performances, International Baccalaureate college credit, and admission to art, music and drama programs at selective colleges and universities across the country.

Arts Building

Our Arts Building, a new feature of our beautiful Spokane campus, serves Lower and Middle School classes with over 3,300 sq. ft. of room for creativity. Just inside the big front windows, a bright Gallery space features the latest student art projects. The expansive Art Room hosts students busy drawing, painting, cutting paper, and exploring different styles of art. A neighboring high-ceiling Music Room features plenty of space for singing, dancing, and playing instruments. Both spaces include white-board and video technology to bring a world of resources into the classroom and prepare students to grow their expressive abilities for years to come.

The arts feed our mind, our body, our soul, our spirit in a way that nothing else can. It’s a voice for us to express ourselves.
