Browning has long sought to provide boys with a balanced and culturally enriched educational experience, and the arts play a major role in that endeavor. Academic courses, which assure a certain level of competence in the history and critical analysis of art and music, are a required part of the curriculum. However, it is equally important to foster a deeper appreciation for the arts. To this end, students set their hands to drawing, painting, sculpture and related media, and display their works in school exhibits and publications. Browning choirs sing at various assemblies and concerts, and individual student musicians are encouraged to perform. Larger groups receive instruction on Orff instruments. Theatrical performances by all age groups are mounted for assemblies and evening productions, and often the energies and talents of school artists, musicians and thespians are pulled together into one unifying effort.
