VISUAL ARTS

"Art is a visual language that enables students to express themselves, their ideas, and their wishes for their community and the world."

-STACI TEAGUE

At Renaissance students learn to think and work like professional artists as they explore the endless ways to experience the creative process through a limitless array of inspiration artists, materials and tools. Learning opportunities promote curiosity, idea generation, craftsmanship and independence. The interconnectedness between all subject areas evolves naturally in the art room as students develop the kind of confidence that can only be found when reflecting upon and fixing mistakes. Fusing of individual interests and experiences result in student works that are innovative self-expressions telling unique personal stories.

Students learn that art is the inner voice which we can use to ignite change in our world.

 

ART IS LANGUAGE. ART IS COMMUNITY. ART IS CHANGE.

PERFORMING ARTS

The performing arts at Renaissance provide students with the opportunity to engage the mind, the body and the emotions in a collaborative and communal expression of all that it means to be human. Students discover their own voice as they grow in confidence ... they develop empathy and ethical insight into the contradictions and paradoxes of the human condition. Beside the fact that it's fun and challenging, performing arts build habits of mind that are essential to living well and weathering the adversities of life. It hones our creativity and intelligence, fosters our compassion, and brings a higher understanding of humanity to our awareness. Performers have to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and good listeners.

It's more than just role-playing or doing a little dance;

                                          it's about learning versatile and transferable life skills that matter.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

"I am responsible for everything I think, say, do and feel."

Students in Renaissance Physical Education classes use physical skill acquisition as a foundation which translates into an understanding and application of what it takes to be a healthy happy human. Learning experiences are purposefully molded to meet the unique physical and mental needs of each student. Perseverance, grit, hard work, sportsmanship, courage, wholeheartedness, the seeking of and application of feedback are all cornerstones of a Renaissance physical education and are embedded within each learning opportunity. Dynamic and complex motor skills are attained through the ongoing development of cognitive and bodily competency in activities that include archery, climbing, sport stacking, badminton, pickleball and circus arts. These skills and habits develop creative, critical and systems thinking while providing purposeful ways to challenge learners to persevere through adversity toward the true meaning of success in any endeavor,

                                                                          doing everything you can today to be better tomorrow.
