Creative Arts

At Summit we believe the creative arts allow students to discover who they are and gain self-confidence along the way. 


The Art of


The creative arts are means of communicating ideas, feelings, and solutions in a way other than verbally or written. The most gratifying part is that students know there is no one way to respond, interpret, or create. They know that their own way will speak volumes.

Students who may be having difficulties in other parts of the school curriculum may find an expressive outlet through the creative arts. The Arts can be a way to uncover creativity that may not be seen otherwise

Creating art enables students to make choices, solve problems, and build identity. At Summit School, there are a variety of programs available in which the students can engage their imaginations and express themselves in a creative environment: dance, drama, media, music and visual arts.



"Every child is an artist." - Pablo Picasso

The focus of the art program is on expressive art activities used purely as a way for students to explore, create, discover, and express their feelings and ideas. Through expressive art-making, student artists can experience a variety of media and materials as a means of finding ways to interpret their experiences. The art program provides exposure to various art techniques, styles, movements, and famous artists from both past and present inspiring each student to see that he or she is an artist with his or her own individual ideas.
