Art & Theater
The arts provide an important way for students to learn about their world and communicate their thoughts and emotions. Our program emphasizes exploration and the development of children’s artistic process skills.
Students master basic techniques across multiple media and experience both the challenge and the pleasure of visual self-expression. Students also discover art amid the cultural richness of New York City. VCS hosts artists-in-residence who share their work and insights; classes regularly visit area studios, galleries and museums.
Our Theater Arts program cultivates an environment of exploration and understanding of the discipline. Through creation, performance and response, students gain confidence, collaborative skills and an appreciation for production that will serve them well throughout life.
The VCS Repertory Theater Program also offers master classes by working industry professionals as part of VCS Beyond the Classroom.
