According to Diane Ruble, professor of psychology at New York University, in single gender environments, without the constraints of gender stereotypes that prevail in coed settings, boys have a greater freedom to be themselves. They become more engaged in art, music, drama, and foreign languages.
Boys at Fairfield Country Day explore our rich selection of music, art, and theater opportunities. For the older boys at Country Day, it is just as “cool” to make the select bell choir as it is to make the hockey team, over 95% elect to participate in music or drama.
In the spacious art studio, boys explore and develop their creativity through the many mediums that are available such as ceramics, printmaking, drawing, painting, weaving, etching and computer generated art.
In addition to the hands on development in the arts, classes also include art history and music appreciation.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
