There are so many opportunities offered by the Fine Arts at Saint Mary's Hall. The Fine Arts classes here at SMH are an amazing way to express yourself creatively in new ways. I have been at SMH since Montessori and am thankful for all the different arts experiences in which I was able to participate throughout my time here. I am also glad that I was able to take three advanced-level art classes during my senior year to expand my knowledge of my primary discipline further. SMH gave me everything I needed to be accepted into top-ranked arts colleges.

As a parent of two children who have been at SMH for 13 and 12 years respectively, and who have thrived academically, I can say confidently, the Fine Arts Department deserves high praise! From Lower to Upper School, fine arts has provided many opportunities for our children: theater productions, annual dance recitals, Orff ensemble, piano recitals, choir, strings (violin and cello), and musicals. I give the Fine Arts Department an A+, as it has provided so many opportunities for my children to explore their interests and develop them along with so many fantastic memories for my family over the years!

The Saint Mary’s Hall Fine Arts program gives students an opportunity to experiment with non-academic interests. In particular, the strings program offers young musicians a fun way to make music with each other and strive for excellence in Region and State competitions. The warm support of the faculty, administration, and the entire SMH community helps students achieve success.

The Fine Arts Department’s passionate, talented, and engaged faculty provide a vertically aligned curriculum which gives our student artists a firm foundation to build upon as they progress in their creative learning through their years at SMH. In addition, the arts faculty are currently working as artists in their chosen field or have been practicing artists in the past. This real-world art experience really enhances their work every day in their classrooms, studios, and on stage.
