The Fine Arts Department offers courses of study that enrich, enhance, and fulfill students’ creative aspirations. These programs guide the student toward deeper self knowledge and global awareness, and reflect AHA’s philosophy of educating the whole person. Students also have the opportunity to be accepted into the National Art Honor Society.
Through the practice of making art, students develop essential skills in the formal elements of art and design and begin to understand the relationships of contemporary culture to the art of the past. All studio classes incorporate research, discussion and reflection on the historical influences and aesthetics of various works of art. For students who wish to conduct serious college-level study, Holy Angels offers rigorous and highly rewarding courses of study in AP Art History, AP Studio Art and AP Studio Art 2-D Design.
The Mac lab takes student artwork to a new level, as they learn design tricks and techniques, create 3-D landscapes and architectural renderings, and edit their own photography and video creations.
