MISSION STATEMENT
 St. Catherine of Siena School, deeply rooted in its Catholic faith, fosters spiritual development, academic excellence, and a commitment to serve others.

Art Classes


Children are given fun and educational artistic experiences where each can be creative, thoughtful and confident.   Projects are designed to deepen student's understanding of the Elements of Art and Principles of Design.  Students work on developing various art making skills and techniques while being encouraged to be original and to use their imaginations.  Each year students visit the Currier Museum of Art for art enrichment and take an educational tour based on their grade level.  

Most artwork is saved for the big art show/music concert in late May.  Some seasonal projects will be sent home sooner.  If you are curious to see what your child is working on please check out the monthly art project list below and the online student art gallery to the left.
