Ansel Adams is not only known for his iconic black and white images of the U.S. National Parks, but for being an incredible technician in the darkroom creating many of the techniques still used today.
St. Sebastian’s has always been committed to the idea that a strong fine arts program is an indispensable element of a well-rounded education. When students engage in the arts, they learn valuable lessons about themselves and about life, lessons that they simply could not learn in any other way.
Students are encouraged to draw, to paint, to shape and form, to act, and to make music. Some write and direct plays; others build sets or work on sound and lighting. Perhaps more than any other department, Fine Arts is inextricably linked to the extracurricular life of the School, as boys develop new skills in the classroom and hone those skills further through various club activities.
