Art Every Day
North Country School encourages children to become passionate about the arts and creative expression. More than a third of our faculty teaches an art class, and we offer a distinctive array of courses.
Students take at least one art class every day. Younger children rotate through a series of classes in music, theater, painting, drawing, ceramics, fiber arts, photography, and woodshop, while 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students choose from elective courses that provide opportunities in advanced studio arts and projects like documentary filmmaking and wooden boat restoration. Each year elective offerings may change based on the passions and strengths of faculty, as well as the interests and talents of students.
