Center for Creativity

The arts have an inspiring home at Shore. Inside the 30,000-square-foot Lawrence A. Griffin Center for Creativity, completed in 2012, inspiration abounds for students, faculty, parents, and visitors to the energy epicenter of the campus. Take a look inside, along with Head of the Lower School Sara Knox, in the video below.

Named after Larry Griffin, Shore’s long-time Head of School and the driving force behind its planning and construction, the Center for Creativity houses a state-of-the-art 375-seat Theatre that rivals many university and professional facilities; two expansive, light-filled studio spaces fully equipped for a full range of visual and ceramic arts; Upper and Lower School music rooms outfitted with traditional Zimbabwean marimbas and Orff and electronic instruments; a digital audio production studio; private music practice rooms; the grand Kiva gathering space and gallery; and the extraordinary Innovation Lab, where students from every grade explore subject areas as diverse as science, history, and music through hands-on work with professional equipment and materials ranging from wood and metal to carbon fiber and circuit boards.

“Creative education takes creative space, and that’s what we’ve built here: a place where Upper and Lower School students, faculty, parents, and visitors can explore and discover new inspiration and ideas that cross all academic boundaries. It’s really what this school is all about.”
