Visual Arts

The primary goal of the visual arts curriculum at Totino-Grace is to guide students through a dynamic, hands-on experience where creative problem-solving, critical thinking and quality visual expression is encouraged and nurtured in a variety of course offerings.  Students participate in weekly critiques and learn about art in historic and contemporary contexts to inform their individual expression. 

Art courses feature drawing, painting, printmaking, scratchboard work, ceramics, stained glass, photography, digital imaging, and more. 

For students seeking to further their art study, portfolio development, college art program selection and art scholarship guidance is available.
