Art & Theater


Visual Arts is an integral component of each child’s education at Fairyland School. Based on the Georgia Visual Arts standards, students are taught through techniques that stimulate the imagination and encourage them to utilize their creative potential in learning about and producing original works of art. Art is created through various mediums including mixed media, 2-D and 3-D designs, textiles and ceramics, drawing and painting.

Discussions of many artists and historical events from past and present inform their thinking and artwork and are often related back to and support classroom studies. In addition, our art instruction provides opportunities for students to work individually and collaboratively to foster social development and cooperative interaction.



The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre, has been touring extensively for more than 40 years now from Montana to Japan, and will visit nearly 1,200 communities this year. A tour team arrives at Fairyland School with a set, lights, costumes, props and makeup…everything to put on a play…except the cast. The team holds an open audition on Monday afternoon and casts 50-60 students to perform in the production. The show is rehearsed throughout the week and two public performances are presented on Friday night and Saturday morning.

All MCT shows are original adaptations of classic children’s stories and fairytales… a twist on the stories that you know and love. Creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills and self esteem are all characteristics that are attained through the participation in this unique, educational project. The Missoula Children’s Theatre is brought to you by the Fairyland School PTO.
