The Arts at Saint Mary’s

At St. Mary’s we aim to enhance the human experience and bring about a closer, more spiritual relationship with God and the surrounding world. We provide opportunities for students, both the beginner and advanced, to explore the arts and acquire historical and cultural knowledge while developing skills across various arts disciplines.

The benefits that an arts program has on our children’s lives are evident and everpresent. Exposure to arts education promotes self-directed learning, improves school attendance and sharpens critical and creative skills. Additionally, research has shown that what students learn the arts may help them to master other subjects, such as reading, math, or social studies. Study of the arts contributes to student achievement and success in school and beyond. Our fine arts program is designed for our k-8 grade students. The program allows them to develop skills in various aspects including sketching, dance, watercolors and yoga.
