Whether you are discovering your creative side for the first time, interested in applying scientific principles in a practical hands-on setting, or want to pursue an art career in college and beyond, CRMS enjoys a robust and unique range of arts offerings with a multitude of dedicated teachers and studios.
The Arts Department emphasizes a commitment to the production and appreciation of art, the awareness of the role of art in society, and the value creative exploration can have on lifelong learning. CRMS is fortunate to enjoy dedicated art spaces for each unique offering. The arts faculty are also all practicing artists themselves and offer a wide array of experiences to share with the students.
The CRMS arts program extends well beyond the classroom. Students have the opportunity to participate in art service crews each afternoon, take advantage of open studios in the evening, and perform musically in Coffee House, band concerts, and all-school meetings throughout the year.
Many students who don’t consider themselves “artistic” or “musical” come to CRMS and are surprised to discover this new side of themselves. By exploring and developing their creativity in the art studios, CRMS students are better equipped to think creatively in the classroom.
CRMS arts are offered through the academic program, service crews, and/or week-long interims: Glassblowing
