The Arts

The goal of the art program at The Phoenix Rising School is to encourage and empower students to utilize their curiosity, intuition, and talent to build their artistic knowledge, abilities, and skills in order to express their own creativity.


Here creativity flows throughout each of our programs to support what students are learning in class! Students work with a variety of materials and media to make artistic representations of their learning in a developmentally appropriate way. Additionally students are taught visual art basics, how to work with 3d materials, and art history.

Students artistic explorations include:

  • conceiving and developing new artistic ideas and work
  • performing, presenting, and producing artwork
  • Understanding and evaluating how the arts convey meaning
  • Relating artistic ideas and work with personal meaning and external context

As always, students learn about collaboration, cooperation, individual responsibility, personal style, and the usefulness of art.

Artistic expression at Phoenix Rising is extensive and multi-faceted.
