The mission of the St. Hilary of Poitiers School Fine Arts Program is to build an appreciation of art, teach skills, encourage confidence and creativity in producing art, and prepare students for the future.  Students experience art in a variety of ways including art production, art criticism, art history, and art aesthetics.  Students learn basic concepts in art such as art elements and principles, learn unique art techniques, use self-discipline and experience exciting hands-on learning.  All students are introduced to a variety of art media to enhance their experiences.  As the children grow, so does their skill level and technique approaches for the projects.
