Art class holds a unique place in the academic offerings at Holy Cross. Not only are there lessons to be learned about the great artists of the world and the many art techniques, ancient and modern, but art classes allow the students to explore their creative genius and apply it in ways that they had never before considered.
Art classes support and enhance the classroom curriculum, as when 6th grade art students explore Egyptian cartouches and 1st graders make and decorate pots for the herbs they have grown in Science. Display cases and boards allow us to showcase our students’ art both here and at St. Mary.
Our Art Room is equipped with a kiln, allowing classes to experience the joy of molding a new work of art with their own hands. What a joy to see the faces of these young creators of beauty.
