Welcome to the Art Page!

Welcome to our Art classes!



We will discover what kind of artist each student is andrealize what

we have been given by God and to teach that to others so to

return it to God.

Our Art classes focus on developing skills, lessons, and activities that meet and enhance the Common Core State Standards of the academic curriculum. The hands-on opportunities presented to our students motivate them to become responsible communicators, collaborators and creative problem-solvers of the 21st century while meeting the National Standards for Arts Education and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Elementary Art Guidelines.

Here are some of our activities we will be doing:

More Information

Homework is generally only given when a student is absent over a long period of time in order to catch up on assignments. Sometimes students will be asked to share ideas or activities with their families as an assignment. Upper grades may also have occasional homework that involves research for an upcoming activity.

In case of a long term project, this will be where a student may find the assignment.
