Lower School Art Show

Our new STEAM Commons has been transformed into a colorful art gallery, showcasing the boys' creations this fall and winter.


Their work is beautiful and varied, featuring paintings, drawings, three-dimensional sculptures, pottery, and woodwork.  Saint David's art program is an integrated study of theory, skill development, and critical analysis of the works of masters, such as Klee, Kandinsky and Matisse.

As one of the four pillars of a Saint David's education, the arts play a prominent role in our boys' education. Boys graduate with confidence in their observational drawing skills, the ability to critically analyze artwork, and an appreciation for the aesthetic.

Thanks to Art Chair Jenna Boccella and teachers Melanie Fidler, Gary Kessler, Rachel da Silva, Bernard Adnet, and Emily Melander for bringing out the artist in each of our boys. The show will be up until March. Be sure to visit!
