The Arts at Doane
One of the most inspiring aspects of the Doane community is the passion its members share for the Arts.
The desire students have to express themselves creatively under the guidance our Arts faculty members is a wonderful representation of our mission.
In a way that is unique within the scope of students’ academic endeavors, Arts courses expose students to the concept of mastering a discipline, a word that signals the dedication, attention to detail, and creativity required to attain excellence. Students in these courses learn to see and hear the world more clearly through the process of making art and in doing so, experience powerful moments of self-discovery. Of particular note is our innovative partnership with Studio Incamminati, a leading school of Contemporary Realist Art based in Philadelphia.

We feel it is important to give students the opportunity to pursue multiple artistic interests, and as such, we have created the Arts Major/Arts Minor structure for students in grades 7-12. Courses designated as Major meet three out of every six school days, while courses designated as Minor meet two out of every six school days. All class sessions are an hour in length, which allows our Arts faculty to minimize prep and clean-up times and devote a higher percentage of class time to activities that help students increase mastery. Completion of a Major course earns a student 1 credit, and completion of a Minor course earns a student a .5 credit.
