Students in every grade take classes related to visual art, drama and music. They are encouraged to express themselves creatively — as individuals and together — while gaining an understanding of the beauty and range of the human experience. Students draw inspiration for their own creations by studying the works of great artists, playwrights and composers. Many Foote alumni have gone on to fulfilling careers in the arts as actors, illustrators, jazz musicians and composers.
