Visual Arts (K-12)

Sacred Heart students are encouraged to explore their creativity and imagination. Proof of their success is always on display in showcases located throughout the hallways. These works are a testament to the many genres of art: sculpture, pencil, papermaking, watercolor, pastels, and acrylics. Elementary artists receive instruction in our dedicated elementary art classroom. Sacred Heart students also have the option of five full years of high school art classes in a super-sized art room lined with heavy, square tables that offer plenty of room to be creative. The room is completed with large windows, a print press, woodworking tools, and a pottery kiln.

Students in 1st-6th have art in a dedicated classroom. Visit our Artsonia K-6 Gallery
