Fine Arts

2023 Slideshow - Art Overview


Theater Performances

Plays are produced each fall and spring, giving students hands-on experience in the technical and artistic aspects of a production.


Verve’ Dance

Our dance troupe, Vervé, produces several shows each year. Many of their pieces are choreographed and directed by students.


Visual Arts

Drawing, printmaking, pottery, sculpture, graphic design, and painting are all offered as part of our fine arts curriculum.


Concert Choir

Voice, diction, and concert choir are also among our course offerings. The choir performs throughout the year in special assemblies, concerts, and national competitions.


Band & Orchestra

Students interested in music also have the opportunity to perform in concert band and string orchestra.


Woodworking & Set Design

In addition to building the sets for Baylor Players production, students who take the Form & Function elective are able to work on woodworking projects that are used on campus.

Fine Arts at Baylor

Baylor offers a vibrant and deep fine arts program that includes theater, chorus, band, orchestra, dance, painting, drawing, sculpture, pottery, digital design, and photography.  While a minimum of fine arts courses are required of all students, we are passionate about delivering the best possible experience for individuals who are interested in a deeper immersion or who may be considering further concentration in college. 

We are also fortunate to welcome to campus throughout the year authors, choreographers, dancers, musicians, poets, and artists from all disciplines as visiting artists and guest lecturers -- and the school calendar is packed each year with performances, concerts, exhibits, and special trips. With the guidance of experienced faculty (many of whom are artists in their own right) the adventure of fine arts at Baylor can be a transforming experience for student artists and performers.
