Middle School Arts

Visual Arts

In keeping with the integrated approach to learning in all divisions at Brimmer, art projects are often interdisciplinary in nature, with attention paid to the cultural significance and historical context of the material. Students learn about the artistic process, experiment with a variety of art forms, and expand their critical vocabulary.

Music

The Middle School music program strikes a balance between performing ensembles and academic music classes that introduce students to world music and classical orchestral styles. May Chorale, the Middle School chorus, performs a variety of musical styles and participates in the spring musical. The Instrumental Band performs jazz and classical repertoires and plays in smaller ensembles. 

Drama

Middle School students present a fall play and a spring musical each year, both open to any interested student by audition. In order to gain a full experience of theater arts, students learn the basics of lighting and staging as well as acting. Classes and productions make use of the Ruth Corkin Theatre, with seating for 300 and a professional computerized light and sound room.
