Ermitage students participate in a variety of artistic and performance opportunities each year, developing their talents and confidence. Art is offered at all levels, including high level academic art projects and exhibits for Upper School students. Various ateliers from cooking to crafts, Irish dance and more are also offered.
For those interested in music, classes are offered depending on age and program, and students are invited to participate in a multitude of productions. Since the early 1990's, Ermitage students have showcased the "American musical" in France. The most recent student productions have included Grease and High School Musical.
Diploma Program Art Exhibition
The annual Art Exhibit presents two years of art-making, creative study, and effort by our DP visual art students. Featured here is a selection of their exhibition work alongside images of their process portfolio and comparative study.
Special thanks to Morgane for producing the virtual tour and Mrs. Gardiner for taking the photographs.
Virtual Talent Show
At the end of the year, we like to celebrate our students, both academically and personally. In 2020, our annual talent show was conducted a bit differently, but our distance learners are always quick to adapt. Thanks to all the students who participated in the virtual talent show by performing at their home stage.
Middle School students travel annually to the Isle of Wight in the UK to participate in an intensive English-speaking theater program. The students spend one week working with professional theater, dance and music instructors on a production, which is later performed in front of the local English-speaking community. This fantastic opportunity for the 40 students who participate creates lifelong memories between the students and their peers, where the enthusiasm of their adventure continues to shine throughout the rest of their academic year.
