Arts Program


Welcome to the Arts at Pomfret!

Creativity and self-expression are essential components to a Pomfret School education and the Arts Department is uniquely placed in both the academic and co-curricular life of the school. We offer courses and programs in painting and drawing, sculpture and ceramics, photography, music, theatre, and dance. We also offer performance opportunities in theater, dance, and music in all terms-- fall, winter and spring. With over fifty electives designed to awaken and challenge every student’s desire to create, the Arts Department is guided by practicing artists who love to teach. The artistic work of our students is an integral part of our community and every Pomfret student is involved through our programs.

So if you are accomplished artist or want to explore new ways of expressing yourself, you’ll find a place to grow and thrive at Pomfret.
