|The arts at Hockaday are nothing short of astonishing. A Lower School Fine Arts Festival showcasing the visual and performing arts. A world-class debate program. The Eighth Grade Musical. Students’ paintings exhibited at the Dallas Museum of Art. A 53-piece orchestra. More than a creative outlet, the arts instill leadership and entrepreneurship as students direct plays, choreograph dance pieces or curate shows.|
It's important that each aspect of an art has a program in which a student can develop, take advanced course work, take allied course work, and have an avenue for self-expression. Hockaday has all that and more.
The Fine Arts Program at Hockaday starts with the youngest student in prekindergarten and seeks to awaken her creativity and self-expression by exposing her to all the various art forms, whether it's in painting an African mask, molding clay, or performing onstage. As she matures from Lower School through Grade 12, she will find her personal artistic inspiration among the offerings of the department. The faculty will help her locate the right resources inside or outside the school to fulfill her personal artistic vision. This hands-on experience is balanced with the equivalent of a guided tour through art and the artists who produced it, lead by a faculty whose wealth of knowledge and personal artistry rivals that of many great art museums.
