Discovering the Self Through Art
Growing up is a period of self-discovery. While this can at times take place in the face of academic or athletic challenges, the process of self-understanding also requires opportunities for self expression free from competition or preconceived expectations. Each child has a creative side seeking expression, but each child has talents and interests unique to him or her alone. One child may find the greatest pleasure in drawing while another may feel most free when playing the flute. One who loves to act may be best friends with another who loves to take photographs, sing, or sculpt.
That is why Wooster School’s arts program offers a wide variety of stimulating and challenging opportunities to students of all ages to explore their artistic selves and find the areas that best allow them to express what they have to offer to the world.
Exploring new media and forms of self expression, tapping into one’s creative resources, and developing skills in the pursuit of artistic excellence are what the arts are about at Wooster School.
