At King’s Schools in Shoreline, WA, we don’t just teach art – we inspire artists. We believe that every student has a unique creative spark waiting to burst into flame. Our mission is to fan that spark, transforming it into a brilliant beacon of self-expression and innovation. Discover the dynamic world of arts at King’s Schools, exploring how we cultivate creativity and nurture the artistic talents of our students. 

Encouraging Exploration: The First Step to Uncovering Talent 

Students at King’s Schools are encouraged to explore various forms of art. Whether it’s painting, music, drama, or dance, we provide opportunities for students to try their hand at different artistic mediums. This exploration helps them discover their innate talents and fosters a love for the arts. Students are introduced to art for the first time in their preschool classrooms. This introduction gives them a solid foundation to expand on as they move to elementary and beyond.

Providing Comprehensive Art Education: Building Strong Foundations 

Our comprehensive arts curriculum is designed to build strong foundations. Students learn about art history, study great artists’ works, and understand various artistic techniques. This knowledge expands their appreciation for art and enhances their creative abilities. Check out why it’s beneficial to have art in the classroom.  

Offering Hands-On Art Experience: Learning by Doing 

There’s no better way to learn than by doing it. At King’s Schools, students get ample opportunities to create their own art. From painting canvases to performing on stage, we provide platforms for students to express their creativity. These hands-on experiences help them refine their skills and gain confidence in their artistic abilities.  

Showcasing Talent: Celebrating Creativity 

We believe in celebrating our students’ creative talents. We host art exhibitions, music concerts, theater productions, and dance performances throughout the year. Every year, students have the opportunity to showcase their works of art at the Art Show. The Art Show allows students to share their creativity with their peers, families, and the community. King’s Junior High and High School is known for its spectacular theater productions. Their recent productions include The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins, and Elf. Theater productions at King’s bring the entire community together, usually selling out within the first week of ticket sales.  

Cultivating a Creative Environment: Inspiring Innovation 

King’s Schools is more than just a place to learn; it’s a space that inspires creativity. Our classrooms are vibrant with student artwork. Our halls echo with melodies from music classes. Our drama studio buzzes with the energy of students rehearsing for their next performance. This creative atmosphere nurtures innovation and encourages students to think outside the box. 

Supporting Creativity: Nurturing Future Artists 

We’re committed to supporting our students’ artistic growth beyond the classroom. We help them participate in local art competitions, audition for community theater productions, or join youth orchestras. These experiences expose them to the broader art world, allowing them to learn from seasoned artists and grow as young creatives. 

Arts and creativity are not just extracurricular activities at King’s Schools but integral to our educational philosophy. We recognize the power of art in enhancing critical thinking, boosting self-esteem, and promoting empathy. As we continue to nurture the arts, we look forward to seeing how our students will use their creative talents to shape a more vibrant and empathetic world.
