Island School believes the fine arts are essential for every student’s complete development and education. We strive to expose all students to creative experiences through various mediums and content areas – visual arts, theater arts, music, and Hawaiian Studies.
Students in elementary, middle, and high school study visual arts in some form. In elementary school, regular art classes are an integral part every students' weekly education through grades five. Middle school students are enrolled in fine arts classes, rotating each trimester between music, visual arts, and theatre arts classes. High school students are required to take visual arts electives and select these from a range of classes including ceramics, drawing, art history, painting, mixed media, independent studies, and other content-specific visual arts courses. Each year visual arts students share work on campus and at exhibitions at local art galleries and participate in local and statewide art competitions.
