The Arts at SLS

A nascent creator lies within each of us. St. Luke's arts program opens wide doors to imagination, free creative play and invention. Mentored by talented faculty, students compose their own music in the MIDI lab; paint, sketch, design, and sculpt in the Art House; dance, sing, act, build, produce, and perform in our Seldin Performing Arts Center and Black Box Theater. Through their creative endeavors, our students add dimension—to themselves, their school, and their community.

National Standards for Arts Education

. . . the arts have been an inseparable part of the human journey. That is why, in any civilization, the arts are inseparable from the very meaning of the term 'education.' We know from long experience that no one can claim to be truly educated who lacks basic knowledge and skills in the arts."

    US Spring Play: DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD by Bert V. Royal

    A story of the Peanuts characters now grown up and in high school. When CB's dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group's bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful.
