Beginning in TK, all students receive vibrant and rigorous art classes which support their creative exploration.

The SJS art program builds a broad foundation of skills while also teaching art appreciation.  With a dedicated classroom, a vast array of supplies and weekly guided art projects, students explore a variety of art techniques and styles.   In addition, they are exposed to a wide and diverse group of artists, focusing on contributions made by individuals and cultures from all parts of the world.

The art program integrates and supports the homeroom curricula, allowing students to gain greater insights into their academic assignments through art.

“Art is essential to providing a well-rounded education,” states art teacher Mrs. Voskuhl, “because it teaches children to communicate their ideas and express their emotions in a visual way.”
