Arts


A creative Bear is a happy Bear, and a love for the arts begins in Grade 3 at Landon School, where you will sample both studio art, music and theater.

You will walk across campus to the Lower School art studio in Torrey Hall to draw, paint and sculpt. And you will get to display your skills in the annual Lower School Art Competition and All-School Art Show, where your works hang in Landon’s Landow Gallery next to those of Middle and Upper School boys.


Most lower schoolers take part in a full-scale theatrical production each spring. Those who love Disney films are especially in for a treat, as recent plays include The Jungle Book, Shrek Jr. and The Lion King Jr., as well as Schoolhouse Rock Live! Some students show off their acting as they belt out songs and deliver speeches, while others use their artistic abilities to build colorful sets or develop technical skills as a member of the sound or lighting crew.


In addition, you will take a music class with your homeroom that will introduce you to a variety of instruments, as well as the concepts of rhythm, melody and harmony. Each boy participates in Band, Strings or Chorus and may audition for the Landon Little Singers, a choral group that has performed throughout the Washington area and at New York’s legendary Carnegie Hall. Even at this young age, Landon boys shine in music competitions far and near, including the Music in the Parks festival in Hersheypark, Pennsylvania (yes, you will get to enjoy the amusement park while you are there!).
