At Wilberforce, fine arts are part of the core curriculum for every student, encompassing visual arts, dramatic performances, and music.
We honor God as creator of all beauty and acknowledge ourselves to be creators in His image. As part of learning how to create art, students imitate classical artwork - its techniques, media, skills, and forms. Whether painting, sculpting, viewing, or studying art history, our students strive to achieve artistic excellence and to find a feast for mind and heart in creative expression.
Music & Drama
Music is a gift from God, and a way to praise God. The goal of our music instruction is for our students to appreciate and create beautiful music. Students discover the joys of choral performance, musical composition, and music history. From Kodaly solfege to ensemble presentations, from Gregorian chant to musical theatre, from folk songs to guitar chords, our students learn to listen, analyze, perform, and compose.
Middle and Upper School students are invited to audition for the annual spring musical at Wilberforce, whether on stage or in production.
