Middle School Arts
Discovering your voice through artistic expression.
Bullis School Visual and Performing Arts Program is designed to advance a student’s ability to discover and develop his or her own voice through artistic expression. A student-centered, interdisciplinary approach balances the exploration of artistic traditions, the development of concepts, and the building of skills. Using a newly ascertained vocabulary, students learn to express themselves, create and problem solve. The Visual and Performing Arts Department aspires to cultivate culturally literate, inquisitive, and independent thinkers who synthesize the greater world through the arts.

The intention of the Lower School Visual Art program is to guide the student into an informed appreciation of art and a life-long interest in learning more about art. The program covers four interrelated disciplines in art. These include perception, creative expression, culture and heritage and informed judgment.
Third through fifth grade students focus on the elements of music—silence, melody, rhythm, timbre, dynamics and form—through a variety of activities which include singing, movement, listening, playing instruments, creating accompaniments, improvising and composing. Students master fundamental vocabulary to express their experiences of music. Elementary note reading and rhythm skills are developed. Songs and listening materials are chosen from traditional, non-traditional and multicultural repertoires.
