Lower School Arts

Walk through the doors of the CESJDS Lower School and enter a gallery of student artistic creativity. Our students have the opportunity to explore fully the process of making art, and creating art, and their formal instruction is always balanced with creative expression. Elements of music, studio art, Jewish music, performing arts, and small group orchestra are integrated into daily life at the Lower School.

Art education is shown to not only increase academic performance across all subjects, but students also show a more sustained interest in school.Emma Whitaker, Lower School Art Teacher
