Arts

Discover new avenues for self-expression

The arts are essential at WRA. Whether on stage, standing before a blank canvas, behind the camera or at the microphone in front of an avid audience, our students have every opportunity to explore and showcase their creative abilities at Reserve.

The fine and performing arts give opportunity for individuality and creativity as well as educational and personal growth. Students experience the professionalism and talent of the departments' faculty. There are a variety of courses offered within each discipline, which opens the doors for all WRA students to find enjoyment in the arts."

- Emily Barth, Chair of the Fine & Performing Arts Department


We offer more than 15 classes in our Fine & Performing Arts Department, under the counsel of one of the most talented arts faculties in the country, many of whom are accomplished professional artists and performers.

Many of our performances are held in the Knight Fine Arts Center (KFAC), the creative hub of campus, which offers a stage, a gallery studio space and The Wang Innovation Center for creative pursuits.
