Visual and Performing Arts at Whitby Scroll to begin
Theater at Whitby extends far beyond any chosen performance. When students are immersed in a production, monologues or other theatrical exercises, they are prompted to ask questions and think as their characters would think. Every question is seen as an opportunity to engage in deeper conversations on everything from conflict to camaraderie.
As a result of these meaningful, real-world conversations, students are able to develop more empathy and perspective for their own characters.
Music classes give students the opportunity to explore compositions and rhythms with their classmates. They also gain a sense of confidence and ability to take risks through improvisation exercises on instruments such as ukuleles and xylophones.
Our cocurricular program has a number of courses for students who would like to further their musical knowledge such as individual instrument instruction, chorus, and a variety of band offerings.
Visual art classes at Whitby extend far beyond any finished piece of artwork. Throughout each unit, students maintain process journals to document their learning journeys.
From rough sketches to final piece, recording and reflecting on their work over time helps them better understanding themselves as artists and individuals.
