Involvement in the arts is one of the central Putney experiences, and the academic arts program, encompassing a diverse range of disciplines in the visual and performing arts, forms the core of the arts program.
Studio visual art courses seek to increase a student's awareness of the visual world, to support the controlled development of a student's unique imagination and emotion into visible form, and to promote an intellectual understanding of the basic formal elements and technical processes of a discipline.
Music courses introduce students to the language and art of music, from both an academic and an aesthetic viewpoint. A full range of drama classes are offered during the academic day, as is a modern dance class with a focus on building both a technical and creative foundation from which to move.
