Overview

Anacapa School is well known for its excellent fine and performing arts program. We have a strong commitment to the development of creativity and artistic expression because we recognize the importance of this component in educating the whole student. At Anacapa, we’re proud of our varied offerings of arts classes. The dramatic productions are excellent, the photography is outstanding, and there is excitement on campus when the ceramics come out of the kiln and the animation videos are screened. All our classrooms are revolving galleries for students’ current work. Each student has the empowering experience of being able to say, “Look what I can do!” Anacapa art students are encouraged to enter at least one piece in the Santa Barbara County Fair & Expo each spring. This juried exhibition always results in many, many ribbons for Anacapa’s fine student artists. We also display student art at the public library each year, and we host an exhibition of student art on campus each spring in conjunction with our theater production.
