art at Da Vinci - guitars

At  Da Vinci Schools, the arts are highly valued and are a vital part of our core academic curriculum. At Da Vinci Design, students take four years of Art and Design as part of their core curriculum focusing on illustration, painting and digital media. At Da Vinci Science, students take Digital Art and Introduction to Engineering Design, a college-level Project Lead The Way course that integrates art, design and engineering. Da Vinci Communications students complete one year of arts instruction. We also offer a wide variety of seminar (elective) classes at the high school level that incorporate the arts, including illustration, web design, graphic design, drama, dance, photography, improv, drawing studio, and more. At Da Vinci Innovation Academy, K-8 students have many opportunities to explore their creative side through enrichment classes such as musical theater, lego robotics, Minecraft, photography, yarncrafting, and more.

We are excited about the expansion of our arts program which includes music performance, music production, and rock band.

Students also have the opportunity to participate in performing arts both inside and outside of the classroom. Humanities students recently wrote an adaption of Antigone, composed original music and sets, learned about essay writing, tone, language, frequency, and sound waves. After school clubs also offer opportunities for the performing arts.
