Whether setting the stage, striking a chord, creating a masterpiece or simply exploring the talents of the individual, Tattnall Square Academy believes its students in the visual arts program gain an insight into themselves. The arts develop important life skills such as focus, concentration, imagination, discipline, and cooperation necessary for the students to succeed in academic areas as well as everyday life experiences.
The Academy places emphasis on the individual student and their unique abilities. This gives each student a chance to build their self-esteem by having their moment in the sun. Through the teaching of the professional elements in the classroom and in performance, the student gains a sense of pride in their own achievement, thus leading to self-discovery as well as building self-esteem. We challenge each student to set high goals, reach beyond perceived limits, and encourage them to think creatively. The arts are necessary for the overall development of the well-rounded, well-developed student.
