Student Arts

Northwest Academy arts classes provide both introductory and advanced instruction in a variety of fields. Students learn by working with professional artists and performers who are passionate about their fields and committed to helping students find their individual artistic voices.

In addition to arts classes, students also have the opportunity to create “Artistic Responses” in their academic classes. Artistic Responses are assignments that allow students to use the media of their choice to demonstrate what they have learned about a subject in class. Students may make a video about The Catcher in the Rye, or write a song in the form of a geometric proof, or design a computer program as a modern interpretation of an ancient Greek myth. The choice is theirs.

Recent examples of art and performances by Northwest Academy students are included in the menu items in this section.
