The arts provide a balance throughout the curriculum that is particularly important for the development of the whole person. Everyone is an artist, and Immaculate Heart encourages each student to find her way, by providing a challenging, supportive atmosphere in which individual creativity and self-expression with confidence can be nurtured.
The visual arts program is designed to introduce students to different artistic skills and techniques. Students are given the opportunity to explore a variety of media to develop their technical skills and explore their own creative voices. Creating work influenced by diverse factors of identity such as gender, culture, values, and religious traditions, each student will gain not only an appreciation for work made by others but also of her own potential artistic contributions. In addition, students will be encouraged to take advantage of the abundant opportunities to experience art in and around Los Angeles through visits to galleries and museums.
