Arts in the Middle Grades

Finding your vision and your voice.

Darlington's middle grades arts program is all about creative exploration while offering a variety of opportunities to hone and refine your skills, talents, and unique creative voice.


Visual Arts

Explorations in different mediums such as painting, drawing, collage, fiber, paint, and pottery immerse children in the power of their own creativity. Students are taught within a sequential program that is adapted to support each individual’s developmental skills. Advanced Art opportunities are available for exceptionally dedicated and talented students.

Choose from Middle School Chorus, Concert Band, Jazz Band and String Orchestra. A formal theater course, taught by the Upper School theater director in the Zelle Black Box Theatre, connects middle and high school performers in a creative way. Each spring, students can also participate in the Thatcher Hall Musical.
