Arts

The arts have real allure here at Peddie.
They’re a fun, creative, immersive experience.



Like our freshman musical, a beloved tradition. It’s an opportunity to step up and stand out as soon as you arrive on campus.

We make the most of our location, near the world’s best art museums, galleries and performance venues in New York City, Philadelphia and Princeton … all just a short ride away on our Culture Bus.

Under the guidance of faculty mentors (many of whom are also working artists), you’ll learn to tap into your imagination and communicate in new ways. You’ll have opportunities to interact with world-class artists in private lessons, master classes and workshops. The Arts Signature Experience is an exceptional opportunity to design your own intensive project and gain hands-on experience.  

We offer amazing facilities like the Mariboe Art Gallery, a black box theater, music and visual art studios, and a 535-seat auditorium with an orchestra pit. Most of which we keep open during evenings and weekends. So you can engage in the work you love, on your own schedule.

It’s no wonder that more than 300 students are involved in the arts on campus every day. Here, you can get involved with what you are passionate or just curious about.

Here, you can do things that no one (including you) expected you to do.
