We are a community of artists. At Mount Vernon, we are designing a culture where our entire community of students, parents, faculty, and staff creates and identifies as artists. Through an innovative industry-centered approach, The Mount Vernon arts program partners with professional artists who collaborate with our students, empowering them to ask questions, explore techniques, and find creative solutions.
Children acquire confidence is work that potentially by trusting in their capabilities.
Through sketching, painting, sculpting, and other methods, students find ways to connect, impact, and influence the world around them. As the visual arts intersect with other disciplines, students begin to recognize how art amplifies life.
Theatre is an immersive experience. Mount Vernon students have endless opportunities to act, design, build, and stage-manage to create electrifying performances.
Our students are performers, receiving individualized instruction from talented faculty, developing into confident and accomplished musicians through concert band, chorus, and audio production.
Dance develops character. Rooted in technique and expression, our emerging dance program, which develops confidence and skill, includes ballet, hip-hop, modern jazz, and tap.
