The Visual Arts and Performing Arts at Donna Klein Jewish Academy provides students with art history, studio art, graphic design, ceramics, music, drama and a visual art education in all three divisions with an environment that fosters excellence in teaching, exploration, creative work, research, and a department-wide focus on student-centered learning.
