Arts

The purpose of the Arts Department at Belmont Hill is to offer formalized and individual instruction in studio arts, art history, and music. Departmental courses are organized sequentially, and a boy's progress in any one of them is regularly evaluated.The ultimate goal of the courses, separately and together, is to nurture a boy's own creative imagination and facility with arts materials and media, to expand his sensory awareness, and to instill in him an appreciation of beauty as it is found in his own work and in that of others.
