GCDS’s vibrant and comprehensive skills-based program in the arts introduces children to the wonders of creation and self-expression. Students’ aesthetic experiences in the performing and visual arts help us to educate the whole person.

Showcasing the Arts

We are proud to showcase student work from Nursery through grade 12 in a variety of theatrical, choral, and instrumental performances throughout the year, as well as art shows, including The Art of Country Day.

From Foundations to Fine Techniques

Music class begins in the first week of Nursery; formal studio art begins in Kindergarten; and as students move through the N-12 program, exploration into the visual and performing arts expands to include a specialized Arts Diploma program in the Upper School for students that wish to focus in this area.
