Arts

Sonny Willis

Every day at Greensboro Day School, the arts enrich the lives and academic experience of our community. At every grade level, students participate in fine arts classes and programs that allow them to enhance their imagination while mastering foundational skills, learning to appreciate and think critically about art, and developing a lifelong appreciation for self-expression and creativity.

GDS offers a rich and varied program in the fine and performing arts, both in the curriculum and through extracurricular activities. The arts are also an important part of our schoolwide STEAM curriculum, which integrates art & design into the traditional STEM fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.
