Arts at Bay Ridge Prep

Led by experienced arts educators with advanced degrees in art, music and theater, the arts program recognizes that creative expression is a vital and integral part of a student’s development. Because learning is both a physical as well as intellectual experience, our studio environments ensure that students are given the tools to explore, discover and create through an embodied teaching approach that is non-competitive and responsive to each person’s unique talents.

Whether the final product is an individual piece of sculpture, a chamber music performance or an ensemble theatre production, the process and journey of realizing that final product are the focus of the arts program.

While many life skills are addressed and developed in the arts, the self-confidence and motivation that comes from doing something enjoyable is a foundational strength that students take with them long after they have left the art studios and stages of Bay Ridge Prep.
