Miss Porter’s School students engage with the arts in the community and the classroom. Our practicing artist teachers lead the discovery of artistic expression through individuality, artistic voice and the belief that creativity can be discovered anywhere.
Our founder, Sarah Porter believed the arts are an integral part of a young woman’s education. Still true today, we honor that vision with our integrated disciplines and exposure to a variety of mediums in our art facilities throughout campus and the wider community.
Are you an artist who works in ceramics, or a photographer? Or are you a future museum curator of art history, or a digital technical artist? We also have doodlers, drawers, painters, and printmakers.
Is your passion Art History?
Learn about art from the past so you can challenge the traditional catalog of Art History to prepare for the future.
Students gain skills and practice through exposure to curators, museum professionals, visiting artists, and Porter’s faculty who are practicing artists. They examine multiple artistic perspectives and expressions, cross-cultural art, and historical narrative!

Do you dream of dancing?
The physical practice of dancing demands structure, discipline, movement and motivation. Creativity and talent give students the foundation to find their voice and confidence, from novice to the more advanced.
