Arts at Siena
Siena Honors Creativity
The Arts are infused into every aspect of life at Siena. Students study photography, drawing and painting, music, drama, film, claymation and more. The arts are also integrated into academic classes on a daily basis—from English to math to foreign language—as Siena engages the visual and creative strengths of its students throughout the school day.
Exploring Your Strengths
In addition to classroom instruction, students typically take a range of arts-based field
trips to several of the outstanding cultural institutions in the area. Typical trips include such events as: the Nutcracker ballet at the Kennedy Center, a visit to the National Gallery of Art, interactive and participatory theater workshops at The Folger Theater, symphonic performances and many others.
