The Arts


Building Futures Together through
Faith & Academic Excellence

As with all talents, we strive to instill in our students a sense of gratitude for the special gifts they have been given and to inspire in them a desire to use their talent for the uplifting of man to the glory of God.

Art Club

Art Club meets once a week after school.  We have a lot of fun experiencing new art processes and techniques with fellow student artists. Art Club is open to students in grades 5–8.

Visual Arts

Our visual arts program provides a creative and enriching art curriculum that includes knowledge, skills and concepts in an age-appropriate manner. Programs include:

  • Exhibits during the year
  • Personalized artwork in support of STM Catholic’s Mane Event fundraiser

STM Catholic offers additional, extra-curricular opportunities in both visual and performing arts. These activities provide young artists with another avenue for exploring and developing their creative talents while giving the entire school and parish community the chance to appreciate those talents.
