With more 80% of our student population participating in the Arts, Latin offers something for everyone.


Visual Arts

Charlotte Latin’s nationally recognized Visual Arts program is part of the fabric of our daily life. Artwork lines the hallways and fills the shelves, becoming a backdrop so familiar in our buildings we are often surprised by visitor’s reactions. Our students study the displays as our art department regularly “installs” new collections to find a favorite project or comment on the historical significance of the project.

Our Lower School Art curriculum is intentionally crafted and developed. Students learn form, style and technique through instruction. Leaving no stone unturned, our teachers incorporate the origin of the art form, the time and period from whence it comes, and biographical or cultural information about the artist or the culture. With such thorough, but age appropriate, review, our students develop a strong sense of design, color, texture and with no fear to explore or try new things.

As students progress through Latin’s art program, they bring an acumen and skill set unique to such a wide array of students. In Middle and Upper School, where students can choose electives, Art is always hugely popular. In 8th grade, students independently design their course in the visual arts and are free to sculpt, paint, draw, design, or photograph any subject area and in any genre they find interesting. With input from the teachers, students continue to develop techniques and style but they are not bound by a conventional or prescribed course of study. This freedom to explore creates a type of student leadership and engagement that regularly results in regionally and nationally acclaimed work.

Performing Arts
It all begins in Lower School with our developmental approach to music. Our beginning students learn about rhythm, beat and tone through singing and playing instruments like wooden blocks, kazoos and the triangle. We perform for each other in small settings and use songs to reinforce memory. As children grow through the program, they learn to read music and learn to accompany songs and keep time through our extensive collection of Orff instruments. In 5th grade, our students each learn to play either a wind or stringed instrument in Horne Performing Arts building. With a variety of concerts, singing programs and our signature Grandparents Day performance our lower school students have many opportunities to perform.

In addition, we cultivate a love for the stage by introducing our fourth and fifth grade students to a short Broadway-inspired play every year. Keeping the scope simple and developmentally appropriate, we pave the way for our Middle and Upper School theater productions.

Middle and Upper School students perform a musical and a dramatic or comedic play every year, and our Upper School students also write, produce and direct our One Acts.
