Arts Block at Lesley Ellis

The rich arts program is a hallmark of the Lesley Ellis curriculum. And ours is punctuated by the Arts Block. Each year, working professional artists visit campus for several weeks at a time and work with small groups of students in a variety of media and disciplines. Students have allocated schedule time, a dedicated arts space, expert instruction, and the opportunity to explore topics such as film, animation, poetry writing, digital photography, graphic design, dance, ceramics, drawing, and painting. Student work is valued and appreciated by the entire community; it is displayed throughout the school and is showcased during all school assemblies.
