The arts—Music, Visual Arts, Theater and Dance—are an integral part of school life. At Saint James, you can get involved with what you are passionate about or something you want to try for the first time. The most important thing is that you explore, because many students who never thought of themselves as artists have discovered talents they didn't know they had.
With so many students actively involved in the arts, there is great mutual support and encouragement among peers who understand the struggle and exhilaration of a work completed. Learning to think flexibly and creatively while developing the discipline to advance one's technique is inherent in the study of all the arts at Saint James.
Opportunities for artistic expression abound—from taking guitar lessons to throwing a pot on a wheel to singing a tune on stage. Plus, you will learn from expert instructors in state-of-the-art facilities. Tap into your creative side at Saint James!
