The Lower School students participate in a variety of Fine and Visual Arts enrichment elements. In grades kindergarten through sixth, students may enjoy Art class featuring crafts, painting, and drawing. In grade six, students may elect to take Chorus, Beginning Band, Steel Drums, and Theatre. The program builds the foundation for the Middle and Upper School Fine Arts.  Along the way, students will experience Music with Mrs. Savage and Art with Mrs. Singer.

Each of these skills can be enhanced by participation in the Royal Academy of the Arts and Enrichment or Extra Curricular Courses. The Royal Academy of the Arts is a fee-based after school art program offering courses with a far larger repertoire of potential activities: you can choose instruments, singing, dance, gymnastics; or expand in the mind and body with academic or spiritual guided classes. The Extra Curricular Courses take place weekly, usually during lunch, and prepare students for Choir, Band, Steel Drums and other options. Lower School Arts at The First Academy are purposefully infused with a character-building, spiritual journey that extends beyond the classroom as a way of life.
