With a team of caring and enthusiastic teachers of various art disciplines as well as visiting artistic professionals, pre-kindergarten to high school students are guided to find their “voice of expression” and supported to apply their creativity to whatever level their courage allows. The students’ evolution as artists is richly evident in the exhibits displayed in the hallways and performances presented for the school community throughout the year.

"The art program at SAS is more than just teaching students about the world through the lens of art. Students are encouraged and trained to express themselves artistically, but the art classes are also used to reinforce concepts that students learn in other disciplines. They learn how everything is connected."
