A Message from the Dean of the Arts:
Art connects us and inspires us to be better community members. It is a universal language. The arts at Newman provide our students with a stunning array of creative exploration, from still life painting to coding a neural net. The Arts team here prides itself on crafting the culture of Newman. It was our founder’s wish that students engage in the arts daily, and we live and breathe this mission. Our arts classes and educators provide rigor and respite for the Newman student. We are invested in relationships and building community and empathy. Please browse the arts page and visit our arts facilities on campus. With world-class artists and art engaging our community daily, this is a special time to be a Newman student.
Andrew J. Rodgers
Understanding and appreciating the arts is essential to the development of the whole child.
We believe that every student is an artist and our mission is to nurture the artist within each student.
We explore the technique and purpose behind our creations, but we also build arts literacy and knowledge of art’s history.
We look to artists from the past to inform our current explorations.
Newman students are encouraged to make connections between the arts and their own lives.
Newman students develop a broad and deep understanding of the world around them, sharpen their creative thinking skills, and learn to appreciate art for its own sake.
