Stirring creativity and confidence.
The visual and performing arts program at Webb enhances expression and imagination. Students learn to observe and interpret the world through a unique lens. Our dynamic roster of arts opportunities helps set the stage for students to find and develop their passions and self-confidence. Creativity is unleashed as they produce and perform.
Webb’s Artist-In-Residence program introduces students to artists from across the United States and abroad. The four-to-six-week on-campus learning and teaching experience offers young people a glimpse into the real world of art by exposing them to professional artists, their work, and their perspectives. During their tenure, artists lead class projects, critique student work, mount an exhibition, and continue their own studio practice.
Hosted on campus each spring, our ArtXtravaganza art show and sale is an annual celebration of the arts and community. The three-day event boasts over 60 professional artists from around the Southeast and beyond. Proceeds from ArtXtravaganza fund Webb's Artist-in-Residence program and support the school's visual and performing arts. ArtXtravaganza also features a student exhibition that allows the local community to experience the work of our budding artists. Our Upper School spring theater production is often held that same weekend.
