Art

The art program at St. Charles School offers students the opportunity to express their artistic creativity. Elementary grades learn the basic concepts of color, line, texture, and form while exploring a wide variety of art media. Middle school students build upon these basics and expand their knowledge as well as appreciation for art through the study of artists from the Renaissance period to the present. Student’s art work is often displayed throughout the building for all to enjoy. Teri Wysopal teaches Art
