K-8th grade students attend art class once a week in the school's art studio room. Lower school students are in class for an hour and middle school students attend for 90 minutes a week.
St. Michael's young artists are exposed to 2D and 3D art including a variety of mediums: graphite, charcoal, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, paper-cutting, wire sculpture and ceramics. In collaboration with the multitude of subjects taught on campus, we focus on cross curriculum relating to the students' grade level, art history and the basic media skills.
The St. Michael's art department includes two teachers: Mrs. Jessica Drissi (lower school) and Ms. Leslie Hackard (middle school).
My goal is to encourage children to stretch their curiosity by delving into books that offer inspiration, adventure, history, laughter, tenderness, and reality."
