Creativity. And the creation of character.

The visual and performing arts naturally offer many opportunities to introduce and apply important life skills. Students learn the joys of self-expression and also principles like confidence, pride, and humility. Beyond teaching performance and creativity, the Far Hills art program is designed to help students make works of art out of their identities.

STEAM in Action

Instruction at Far Hills is multi-disciplinary. Watch how the eighth-graders in an art class engineer a Rube Goldberg contraption to zip a zipper without any hands. This inquiry-based learning develops important life skills including creativity, teamwork, resilience, and time management.
