Visual and Performing Arts Overview

Marian Catholic's Visual and Performing Arts Department encourages students to develop and value artistic creations as a means to communicate ideas, thoughts, feelings and emotions. Through their study of art, music, and drama, students learn to plan, develop and present artistic products or performances that reflect their own creativity. Students are also encouraged to try new combinations of tools, resources, techniques and approaches throughout their study. A sample of the courses we offer are:
