Enhancing and Enriching the Entire Curriculum
At Hewitt, the arts enhance and enrich the entire curriculum. Arts education at Hewitt affords girls the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the world by taking creative risks, thinking independently, working collaboratively, and exploring visual and performative art from around the world. Through an array of artistic experiences — classes, rehearsals, dramatic productions, concerts and exhibitions — Hewitt girls have opportunities to explore and nurture their own creative abilities, and to analyze, challenge, and connect.
Hewitt’s enviable proximity to New York’s great cultural institutions enables students to experience and learn from the city’s abundant artistic resources. Whether visiting world-famous art institutions, gathering at local galleries, or observing public works hidden in plain sight, Hewitt students interact with art in a meaningful and intentional way that connects back to their own artistic creation.
In addition to annual concerts and exhibitions organized by division, students also have the opportunity to submit works to a student-juried K-12 exhibition, Hewitt’s arts and literary magazines, and national competitions sponsored by Scholastic and Photographer's Forum. Outside of Hewitt, our musical ensembles perform at the NJSMA (New Jersey School Music Association) Elementary Choral Celebration at Drew University, the Riverside Handbell Festival, and the NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association) Solo Instrument Festival.
