    Art

    It’s a Picasso!

    No, it’s a Monet!

    No, it’s a Virginia Park original!  And it’s not the only one!

    Our school is filled wall to wall with beautiful pieces of art that our children have created over the years. We value children’s imagination and they are encouraged to express their creativity through visual arts. In an arts core school students learn art history, study famous artists and their techniques, and are taught observation and design skills. Students have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of media, including watercolor, acrylic and tempera paints, charcoal, ink, textiles, clay, oil and chalk pastels, and found materials. Visual art is taught weekly by specialists and is naturally integrated into other curricular areas. Our student’s works of art are showcased in a variety of public venues. We live, breathe and appreciate art!

    Drama

    Lights, Camera, Action!

    Here at Virginia Park School we firmly believe that drama inspires creativity through dramatic play. All students have the good fortune of exploring the drama curriculum in a designated drama space, as well as classrooms and on our professionally lit stage. Drama is taught weekly and is also integrated throughout all curricular areas on a regular basis. Our program includes a variety of puppets, props and costumes that students use to express characters, ideas, moods and stories. Students have the opportunity to perform in class, at assemblies and during concerts. Staff work cooperatively to write unique scripts based on the current school year theme for the winter production. All four art disciplines are showcased in this performance which is collaboration between students, parents and staff. You will find drama everywhere here at Virginia Park. That’s a wrap!

Integration of classroom themes and units as well as our School Wide Theme brings meaning to the children's learning and adds to the overall dance experience!

Welcome

Virginia Park is a K-6 school offering Arts Core programming in an inclusive, community-orientated environment. We offer drama, music, dance and visual arts instruction to all our students as well as integrated arts instruction as part of the programming for all our subject areas. We believe experiences in the arts provide opportunities for students to develop their competencies, explore who they are and deepen their understanding of the world they live in.

This school year our theme is “Our Fantastic World”. We want all our students to develop a sense of wonder about our world and have the skills, attitudes and knowledge to go out and change it for the better. An Arts Core education encourages students to develop a respect for cultural, individual and aesthetic diversity and gives them the problem-solving and critical thinking skills to be successful in their futures.

We are excited to work alongside your children helping them grow through their challenges and develop positive and meaningful relationships. 

We always welcome feedback and any questions you may have.
