We teach music, drama and visual art to students in all grades to support creative thinking and expression and encourage well-rounded character development. Our students’ artistic talents are showcased on and off campus through concerts, assemblies, festivals and talent shows celebrating the arts.
Senior students can explore self-expression through art, drama, film, choir, band and string orchestra at QMS.
Specialist teachers in fine arts encourage Senior School students to hone their skills and create or perform with confidence. Students may also take private lessons to study a musical instrument or voice.
An optional Advanced Placement (AP) Studio Art program allows preparation for entry into domestic and international schools of art, design, and architecture.
Musical and dramatic expression begin in the early years with an introduction to rhythm and tone, singing, role playing and stage presence. Optional private instrumental and vocal lessons are available on-campus beginning in Kindergarten, and students may study band instruments starting in Grade 5.
In the Intermediate grades, visual art classes are led by specialist teachers to cultivate students’ confidence as they explore the elements and principles of design, two- and three-dimensional materials, photography, and design software.
