Arts thrive at Minnehaha – and so do our artists.
Minnehaha’s Fine Arts program has long been celebrated for its excellence.
Being part of Fine Arts at Minnehaha is not just about fostering talent. It’s about experiencing art, enjoying art, and developing an appreciation for art that will last a lifetime. Your child will gain from the instruction and inspiration of highly trained and skilled faculty who not only teach, but practice their art in a professional setting. The curriculum is designed to foster self-worth and creative expression as it integrates faith and learning.
At Minnehaha, every student is an artist. Throughout Lower School, our students sing, perform, draw, paint, sculpt, and make pottery. Band instrument instruction begins in the fifth grade, and Suzuki string instruction is available as early as Kindergarten. In Middle School, students choose from yearlong programs in choir, band, and strings, along with classes in art, theatre, and general music. These courses prepare students for the many Upper School arts opportunities available in choral groups, bands, orchestra, and theatre, as well as visual arts classes in drawing and painting, graphic design, photography, film, sculpture, and ceramics.
The school calendar is filled with art exhibitions, concerts and theater events throughout the year, so you can see your child shine.
