At GWA, students hone their creativity through both visual and performing arts in the lower and upper schools. Beginning in Kindergarten, all elementary students have both Music and Art classes each week. In middle school, students explore focusing on art, music, and drama. In high school, students deepen their art, music, and drama interests with a variety of courses that challenge them to grow their creativity, talent, and skill. Each Spring the Visual & Performing Arts department stages a musical with a cast of middle and high school students who audition in the Fall for their roles. In addition to on-stage opportunities, students get involved in the musical through leadership roles in areas such as set construction, stage crew and choreography for the shows.
