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.
With our campus being so close to New York City and other arts-hubs, our students regularly take advantage of artistic opportunities in the surrounding areas. Recent excursions have included an all-school field trip to the John W. Engman Theater in Northport, New York to see A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, a field trip to the Gershwin Theater in New York City to see Broadway's blockbuster hit Wicked, and a trip to the Roundabout Theater in New York City to see the musical Scotland, PA.
