Our fine and performing arts program features a school curriculum targeted to help you reach your artistic potential in drama, music, or the visual arts.
At Chatham Hall, you can gain the skills of creative expression, as well as self-knowledge. Formal training, practical experience, and an academic approach will help you set high standards for your art and enable you to take risks in a supportive environment. Our enthusiastic and supportive Art Department faculty serve as mentors and guides as you explore every medium.

  • Performing Arts

    Dance and theatre are offered as afternoon activities every weekday, every season. This affords you numerous opportunities to act, dance, direct, or be on the crew of productions, including dance recitals, plays, and musicals. Student-led clubs provide additional ways to get involved with the performing arts. Private music lessons are also available on campus for vocal and instrumental training.
  • Visual Arts

    You can express yourself through many different mediums, including drawing, photography, painting, sculpture, and mixed media. You can also continue your passions through independent studies and portfolio classes for advanced study. In addition to regularly offered art courses, there are art-based clubs available to students, as well as January Term courses offered each year.
