The arts are the voice and memory of all communities and all societies. They are a universal language, a unifying force for humanity and an opportunity for our students to express themselves. Throughout the ages, individuals have used the God-given gift of fine art as a way to bear witness to and commemorate the great moments in the life of Christ and the Church.

 Our Art curriculum meets the high expectations of the National and New York State Standards in Art Education. It includes grade-level-appropriate exploration of:

  • Aesthetics

  • Art criticism

  • Art heritage

  • Art production

We encourage children to express their own thoughts and emotions through fine art as a way to cultivate creative thinking and emotional development. We integrate the role of the Church in the discussion of art history and criticism.
