“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” - Pablo Picasso
At Morgan Park Academy, we believe that all students possess the creativity and discipline needed to be an artist, whether it’s through painting and sketching, playing a musical instrument or presenting a dramatic piece on stage. The Academy art programs give all budding artists, from beginners to experienced, the chance to hone their skills, discover their artistic passion, and work together to create masterpieces.
The skills students gain in the arts are used as a cross-curricular tool in many classes, through the study of patterns, sound, movement and practice. Art, music and drama are an integral part of the curriculum from preschool to Grade 12, and many of our alumni have gone on to study the arts at exceptional universities. In keeping with Picasso’s vision, the Academy supports a child’s development of artistic expression, and encourages students to be lifelong supporters of the arts.
