Arts at PC
PC engages students in both traditional and contemporary methods, including photography, drawing, painting and printmaking, sculpture, ceramics and graphic design. The National Art Honor Society sponsors activities for students to showcase artwork in school and in the community. All students are encouraged to exhibit work throughout the year in regional contests and exhibitions, as well as in PC’s annual Celebration of the Arts, a juried exhibit held at school each spring.
PC includes acting, public speaking, and technical theatre courses, as well as the extracurricular PC Players. A three-show season includes a fall play, student-directed holiday showcase, and spring musical. Recent shows include comedies like The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, heartwarming stories like Charlotte’s Web, and the musicals Cinderella, The Addams Family, and The Wizard of Oz. All sets are designed by tech theatre students.
Students of the arts participate in field trips to college and professional productions, backstage theatre tours, visits to special art exhibits, and a spring trip to experience Broadway and the legendary art museums of New York City.
