Nurturing creativity at Sacred Heart
We believe that art assists in developing and using higher level critical and creative thinking skills. It helps students to develop and use a unique form of communication and self expression. Art also provides another way for students to experience their own and other cultures. Most importantly, art increases learning in all areas of the curriculum, builds self-esteem, encourages self-reliance and enhances lifelong learning.
Sacred Heart School partners with Art Trek, a nonprofit arts organization and arts center whose mission is to bring quality art experiences into the classroom and community. Active since 1992, Art Trek has been creating positive and confidence-building experiences for individuals of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds in kinder through college classrooms. In addition to providing teachers with professional training workshops, Art Trek also supplies materials to provide students with hands-on art instruction.
