VISUAL & Performing ARTS
At Every Level
Canterbury supports all of our student artists, from those just beginning to sixth formers preparing college portfolios.
GETTING INVOLVED WITH THE ARTS AT CANTERBURY PRESENTS YOU WITH MANY, MANY POSSIBILITIES. It is a chance to create something—bringing an image to life on canvas or a character to life on stage. It is also an opportunity to acquire something— new skills and new tools for creative problem-solving. Of course, the arts are also full of enjoyment—from staging The Music Man or signing up for Rock Band to designing the building of your dreams in Architecture. Canterbury offers you all that you need to make your arts experience great: a broad range of courses in visual art, music, and theater; passionate teachers who are practicing artists themselves; and beautiful facilities, from our recording studio and individual music practice rooms to the Edward J. Duffy Art Family Gallery.
Just 85 miles from New York City, Canterbury lies within easy reach of world-class museums, Broadway theater, and stunning cityscapes.
“The arts give our students the chance to step outside their comfort zone and practice thinking in creative new ways.”
