We consider our arts program central to the growth and development of each student’s sense of self. Through a wide variety of mediums, visual arts students express who they are and how they relate to the world. But most importantly, they become artists and learn to value their own creative expression thus themselves. This year we are integrating social activism through public art through the study of art in downtown Asheville. The girls have been challenged to re-imagine pubic spaces and will present their visions to our state officials.
In addition to the visual arts, the girls are immersed in music and drama classes throughout the year. Each semester the girls have an opportunity to showcase their talents through the fall play, and the Spring Arts Festival (includes Project Runway our most popular 7th grade art project!)
At Hanger Hall the arts are the most popular form of self-expression for our girls. We encourage our girls to express themselves from within rather than through what they wear or what they own. Our arts program provides them with just the right outlet!
