The Renaissance International School’s Art Program extends beyond the walls of the studio. Since 2003 our students have had the opportunity to exhibit their work in public.
We believe in every child’s ability, giving careful guidance, fostering individual intelligence and creativity, educating the whole child. Children naturally discover their strengths, passions, voices and creative spirits. A strong visual art education offers many extraordinary benefits to children. Improvement in critical thinking, problem solving, flexibility, coordination, creativity, self-direction, personal expression and communication are goals of the art studio.
The Visual Art program is an essential component of TRIS’s curriculum. Art is a language of its own that transcends borders and links one part of humanity to another. It is an expression of identity and a crucial element to understand the heart of a people. Education at TRIS is trilingual, and we explore culture as well as language. Students from 2 to 14 years old have been discovering their strength, passion, voices and creative spirits through a variety of media. It is amazing what complexity and creativity our students can produce. We invite you to explore their inspirations.
"The human hand, so delicate and so complicated, not only allows the mind to reveal itself but it enables the whole being to enter into special relationships with its environment... man 'takes possession of his environment with his hands.' His hands, under the guidance of his intellect transform this environment and thus enable him to fulfill his mission in the world."
—Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child
About The Renaissance International School (TRIS):
The Renaissance International School was founded by Leslie Hites in 1992. We are a Montessori school with approximately 170 students from 2 years of age through middle school.
In each classroom, beginning with our toddlers, we offer Spanish and French immersion via Montessori teachers who are native speakers of these languages. We are also a Kodály choral school, with musical instruction for all children, beginning at the toddler level as well. Furthermore, our school has a particular dedication to the Arts.
