At Grove School, we hope that creativity is a part of our campus’ culture and one of our goals is for art to be everywhere. In addition to sculptures that can be found throughout the campus, the school also offers students the opportunity to take a range of electives in the Fine Arts.
Students can also participate in after-school clubs that are geared towards painting, photography, and other artistic activities. And in addition to the school’s annual Evening of the Arts, the school presents Art Fairs for the entire community to attend, in which the work of students is showcased and on display. We want all of our students to explore the arts – for some, this can be a creative outlet, and for others it can be essential therapy. Our Arts program is proud to present students with so many options.

This course would include an emphasis on film criticism, theory, and aesthetics. The class will have a broad appeal so that students with a wide range of interests an aspirations can take this class as an elective while learning about the basics of creating art for a visual medium. Students will be introduced to specific genres, directors and styles. Students will also be encouraged to develop an understanding of film criticism so that they themselves can articulate an understanding of a film’s themes.
