The Anne Reid '72 Art Gallery is currently displaying the work of 9 PDS faculty artists. This week we highlight two of our outstanding artists, Jerry Hirniak and Dodie Colavecchio! This is the last week to see this remarkable show, which will close on Sunday, November 17th.
A Remarkable Range of Opportunities
Our curriculum is impressively extensive. It ranges from an active program of art and music for all Lower School students to an introduction of the theater program to Middle School students to a broad range of choices in the Upper School. Courses include beginning and advanced explorations in dance, music, theater, ceramics, video and media art, photography, architecture, and furniture design.
Upper School students in the award-winning Princeton Day School theater program tackled an emotionally-packed production of Eric Ulloa's 26 Pebbles this fall. Director of Performing Arts Stan Cahill and members of the cast share their reflections on the performance and why they believe it was so powerful.

Expectation of Excellence
Whether it’s striking self-portraits completed by eighth graders or the remarkable performances of the school’s chamber music ensembles, a single theme unites experiences in the arts at Princeton Day School: the expectation of excellence. In meeting their teachers’ and their own high standards, students discover what it means—and what it takes—to produce work of real quality.
Starting in Middle School, all students explore not only fine art, but also design arts, including architecture. Those interested can pursue the discipline in unusual depth, with several advanced electives in Upper School.
Shades of Broadway
The Upper School fall play and winter musical feature exceptional performances, as well as sets, costumes, and lighting design to rival professional productions. These productions have received recognition as among the best in secondary school education in the state.
The School’s arts wing provides an inspiring home to the visual and design arts. Highlights include dedicated studios for ceramics and sculpture, architecture, painting, woodworking, and digital and traditional photography.
