The Arts at Oldfields

Oldfields believes in the critical link between learning in the arts and core curriculum subjects. The School's comprehensive program in the Arts allows each girl the chance to be involved and to learn through a wide range of visual and performing arts - whether she is a beginner or an experienced artist. As part of the graduation requirements, Oldfields students are required to take at least one year of art, including either performing or fine arts. Many students go far beyond the minimum requirements, experimenting in areas they never considered before Oldfields'art program!

As part of the physical education requirement, students may choose to participate in the co-curricular dance program or theater in lieu of a team sport. In addition, Oldfields presents an annual Arts Week, five days of fine arts and performing arts workshops and demonstrations for the entire school, featuring performances by practicing artists and professional dancers and performance troupes. Oldfields arts faculty are practicing artists and integral members of the teaching staff.

Whether students enter Oldfields with little or no experience in the arts or with years of expertise and training, every effort is made to expose Oldfields girls to a wide variety of dance, theatre, and music. The girls gain the satisfaction of being part of a different kind of team, develop creative problem-solving skills and build leadership skills that carry over to academic settings, and allow for personal discovery and growth that can last a lifetime.
