Whether your child is interested in dance, visual arts, music or theatre, our goal is to energize, educate, nurture and support his or her passion for the arts each and every day! From kindergarten through senior year, FWCD students are given the opportunity to engage with dedicated faculty artists who strive to challenge and motivate students in their artistic pursuits. From the ceramics studio to the photo lab, from the ballet studio to the Scott Theater, from the band hall to the orchestral stage, our students explore their artistic imaginations and goals, tackle the challenges of multiple art forms and artistic concepts, and connect with their teachers and to the world outside of our campus through these exciting cultural experiences.

I invite you to celebrate the arts with us. Our fine arts calendar lists all of our concerts, theatrical performances and art exhibitions. Please join us as we celebrate the hard work and talents of our students and faculty. Fort Worth Country Day is truly a champion of the arts, and we look forward to sharing our arts with you.

Please check out our fine arts Instagram, @fwcd_finearts, where you can get a glimpse of a day in the life of FWCD fine arts students.

  • Marching to a Different Drum Beat

    Lower School third- and fourth-graders are marching to the beat of 120 drums this year! Music Teacher Julie Dean crafted drums for her students so they each have their own. “I got the idea of making these drums when I first started at FWCD from a supplemental teaching book published by Artie Almeida, a music teacher that I saw at a session at TMEA [Texas Music Educators Association],” Dean said. “I originally thought this would be a great thing to have in my back pocket of resources. I made a classroom set after my first year here and used them in May as a way to keep the kids excited and engaged toward the end of the year. It has been a couple of years since I pulled them out.
