The visual and performing arts play a special part in the curriculum and the culture of Bay Farm Montessori Academy. Full-time specialists work with the classroom teachers to ensure that art, music, drama, and dance are integrated throughout the curriculum. Visiting artists augment the arts programs and provide instruction in their specialty. Field trips to performing arts theaters, museums, and galleries give students the opportunity to view the art of others in context, often associated with the learning objectives of their Montessori classrooms.
