The visual arts program gives students from kindergarten through eighth grade access to a variety of art resources. The curriculum is in alignment with standards set forth by the Archdiocese of Washington. Students learn about the history of art and they learn to recognize artists and styles of art. Students build confidence while developing skills through experiential activities using a wide range of media: watercolor, tempera, modeling compound, wire, etc. They use established procedures and are taught to maintain a positive attitude for their own creative ability, and to respect that of others. Student artwork is displayed throughout the school all year. We are proud to say that many of our talented students have won art awards and have been recipients of high school art scholarships.
