Self-Portrait_Isaac_age_11A strong visual art program provides children with so much more than an opportunity to express themselves. It improves their critical thinking, problem solving, flexibility, coordination, creativity, self-direction and communication.

At The Renaissance School (TRS), art lessons are provided at all levels—from pre-primary to 8th grade. Our students consider the art studio as a place where solutions are found for even the most impossible problems. The work that they create is exceptional.

Our students often exhibit artwork in the main lobby of 1111 Broadway in Oakland’s City Center. In fact, the building manager recently asked TRS to bring new work every semester.
