Celebrating Arts & Artists
Our Visual and Performing Arts community celebrates art and artists throughout the year. We share our talents through exhibits in the Solarium, photo shows in local galleries, and performances on our stage. Students at Knox earn at least one full credit in Visual Arts and one full credit in Performing Arts in order to graduate.
Many of our arts courses offer students the opportunity to develop their confidence, their ability to work independently, and their understanding of the importance of playing a role in an ensemble effort. These skills benefit our students in future endeavors, whether in the arts, business, education, law, or science. Developing critical and creative thinking skills is essential to achieving success in the modern workforce. To learn more about curricular offerings, click here.
Students regularly take advantage of artistic opportunities in the surrounding areas. Recent excursions have included trips to Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor (Of Mice and Men) and our annual trip to the Metropolitan Opera (Turandot).
All students are welcome.
