Arts

 logo by Nadia PenkoffLidbeck '17
Think Creatively • Communicate Effectively • Contribute Uniquely

The Arts provide the tools that fuse the connection between intellect and emotion. Having a sense of self or an awareness of self is vital to a complete and successful education. The Arts at The Williams School seek to engage students in an individualized creative process. Within the academic curriculum of the Arts, students are assisted in developing the self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperative collaboration, and self-motivation necessary in everyday life. Students of various abilities and levels are given opportunities to translate ideas into action, to listen and to observe, to develop critical thinking and innovative problem solving skills, to learn to access information that will enrich their lives. This repertory of skills and experiences will enable students to identify life challenges and to achieve personal goals.



Williams art students were selected into the juried Connecticut College Circuits exhibition, part of the Body and Technology series. Their work is featured starting on page 27.

Seasonal Performances

Winterfest
Winterfest is Williams' annual concert celebrating the holiday season.

Compchorea
Compchorea
began in 1982 as a concert of original student choreography (dance) and original student compositions (music). The name of the concert is derived from the words COMPosition and CHOREOgraphy. Compchorea is a chance for our students to realize their creative ideas. They take the techniques and theories of class work and combine them with the magic spark of imagination.

Enviro
Enviro
is a concert of site specific works, created and performed by students in the theatre and dance classes. Site-specific pieces are inspired by the design, architecture, setting, natural elements and function of the place chosen for the performance piece. Usually 5 or 6 sites are chosen and developed here at the school. Music students may provide live music at one or more of the sites. Enviro is based on the work of director/choreographer and teacher Stephen Koplowitz who was a guest artist at Williams in the fall of 2004. Enviro takes place every other year in the spring (It was last performed in May, 2017). It is performed for one evening and student volunteers act as guides for the audience, directing them in groups on their journey through the event.
