In order to lead in the 21st century you need more than a relentless work ethic – you need creativity and ingenuity. At The Brook Hill School, we believe our God-given creativity is deepened through our practice of the arts. That’s why we emphasize what we like to call the educational arts- so that you can learn creativity through the exercise of arts like drama, music, singing and the visual arts.
Expressions of Creativity
Some students have a special talent in music – vocal or instrumental. Others are gifted in the visual arts, and can draw, paint and sculpt. And there are still others whose talents lie in the dramatic arts, on the stage or in the tech booth. But wherever their personal talents are focused, our goal as Christian educators is to inspire in our kids a passion for their respective art form that will motivate them to stretch their creative abilities and to excel in their art in a way that will honor our Maker and His creative genius.
Pablo Picasso said, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” We believe that every student needs a creative outlet; a time for self-expression; a moment during the school day to “cut loose” and wash away some of the stress associated with the academic rigors of the teen years. At The Brook Hill School, the extraordinary fine arts educators provide just such an experience.We challenge. We encourage. We inspire. We have fun. And we do it with excellence.
