The visual arts at St. Mary’s high school strive to educate students by supporting their creative abilities through all levels, from beginner through advanced. Instruction reinforces skills in studio art through the exploration of four main areas: Production, History, Criticism and Aesthetics. Students create original works of art utilizing a variety of media and techniques including, but not limited to, drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics and collage. The visual arts offer students an area of self-expression while beautifying the community and giving back to St. Mary’s.
St. Mary’s strives to provide a curriculum that fosters self-expression, teaches creativity and nourishes the imagination. Current course offerings in the visual arts include Art 1, Art 2, Art 3, AP Studio as well as Ceramics 1 and 2.
