The Arts

Fine Arts

Our art program culminates in Advanced Placement Studio Art (AP art), available to seniors who have taken certain prerequisite courses. In AP art, students have the freedom to create individual portfolios based on the media of their choice, whether that is a series of paintings, photographs, or designs created entirely on a computer. The AP portfolio is a wonderful opportunity for students to build art rooted in personal inspiration. Teacher input is given, but for the first time in their artistic career, students are not given assignments, but rather free to create for themselves.

Students who have come out of the ICS program have gone on to some of the most prestigious art schools in the world, including Parsons the New School for Design, Rhode Island School of Design, Central St. Martins College of Art & Design, Art Center College of Design, and Savannah College of Art and Design.

Performing Arts

Drama

Drama enriches us spiritually, emotionally, physically and intellectually. It fosters creativity, teaches discipline, inspires self-confidence, and encourages cooperation. The ICS drama department places equal value on the learning process and performance. Our classes and co-curricular activities are open to all students who want to develop a lifelong appreciation of the arts and explore their potential. The program stresses the importance of these dramatic and presentation skills across all subject areas, not simply the stage.

Music

Music enriches us spiritually, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. It fosters creativity, teaches discipline, and encourages cooperation. The ICS music department places equal value on the learning process and performance. Our classes and co-curricular activities are open to all students who want to develop a lifelong appreciation of music and explore their potential as musicians.
