Every spring special events in visual and performing arts celebrate and share our best student work of the year with our broader community.
Arts Jam Concert at GMU
“My youngest child was rapt the whole time.”
“When the orchestra appeared out of thin air everyone around me gasped.”
“Its just like a professional show. It’s so well done!”
Ask anyone who’s been— our Arts Jam music and dance concerts at George Mason University’s Concert Hall are anything but a typical “school concert” as eight of our music and dance ensembles collaborate and perform together on a professional stage.
The 2016 program, “Arts Jam Synergy,” featured Broadway, Classical, Jazz, World Music, Pop, and A Cappella. It finished with a grand finale including the entire cast of over 140 students and 8 ensembles performing “A Michael Jackson Medley.”
Visual Art Shows
In addition to the GMU Concert offsite, Flint Hill’s halls and classrooms are transformed into galleries of the year’s best work.
The “Lower and Middle School Visual Arts Show” fills our campus with an amazing exhibit of more than 400 pieces of 2D and 3D art. Tours are given to parents, grandparents, friends and fellow students. From drawing, painting and sculpture, to ceramics, photography and printmaking, students in Grades 7 and 8 write artist statements to accompany their work.
The “Upper School Visual Art Show” is an incredible showcase of the advanced work that takes place in our studios. Attendees meet the student artists at our grand opening reception and ask them about their work. The show displays artwork from four major categories: ceramics, digital art, photography and a portfolio exhibition.
