“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”  Thomas Merton

Grammar Art

Grammar students explore God’s order and beauty found in the basic elements and principles of design as they attend art class once a week. Students are instructed in the basic principles of art found in the art alphabet and are taught how to apply them to their drawings, paintings, mosaics, and sculptures. They gain exposure to particular techniques and are able to experiment as projects are created through a variety of media including charcoal, pen/pencil, Cray-Pas, pastels, watercolor, chalk, clay, and mixed media. Each grade TK-5 is exposed to an introductory level of art history that corresponds with their classroom studies.

“A work of art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”   Edgar Degas
