Arts Week 2021

By Ms. Margot Harms, Head of Fine & Performing Arts, Senior School 
Although reduced this year due to pandemic restrictions, Arts Week (April 12-16) was lively and memorable, and featured many fun events that celebrated the arts and highlighted our students’ talents. Events included morning musical performances and lunchtime recitals, a visual arts show, our virtual Coffee House talent showcase, and cool arts workshops (comic illustration, hip-hop dance, acting, tattoo stenciling, canvas bag illustrating …).  
We invite you to watch our broadcast performances; viewing links are below. Don’t forget to congratulate our performers—your applause may be silent but it's still powerful!

Thanks to everyone who helped coordinate and who participated in our 2021 Arts Week, including student artists Sophia Kemeny, who designed the Arts Week poster, and Max Chu, who designed the Coffee House poster. Although we enjoy the arts every day, it's important to celebrate the immeasurable impact of the arts in our lives and learning.
