Each student that walks into an art classroom is at a different place in her artistic development. For those of us in the Visual Art Department,  teaching means meeting each student at her own level and then finding a way to encourage her to take her art to the next stage.
This artistic philosophy is practiced in all of the mediums we offer here at St. Francis High School – Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Digital Photography and Digital Film.  Regardless of the medium,  we push our students to ground their work beyond the aspect of individual expression by challenging them to develop a sense for critical language that draws on historical and contemporary art contexts.
