Top 10 Ways The Arts Help Children Learn And Grow...

Visual Arts

With the study of basic Principles and Elements of Art, children increase their sensitivity to the beauty of the world. Our goal is to offer experiences that allow our students to be fully involved in the process of art making through the exploration of a large variety of media and methods. The students develop visual literacy as they learn about art elements and principles, cultural heritage, art history, and aesthetic valuing. Key components in our curriculum are developing creative thinking and technical skills.

Music

Our Lady of Perpetual Help School’s music department gives students the opportunity to participate, experience, and celebrate music as a part of a growing Christian faith while acquiring a foundation of music knowledge. General and Liturgical Music classes are incorporated into the curriculum.
