Visual Arts

We offer students an array of art opportunities to meet any interests. We recognize all students have unique God-given talents and offer programs to encourage unique skill development. 

Specialty Arts Programs

 

Unique Art in the Classroom

With a partnership with ArtsinStark, Holy Cross preschool teachers were trained and are integrating unique art into classrooms. Besides regular art classes, teachers offer opportunities for children to make art projects different from their classmates. Afterall, it's our different qualities that make us special. 

 

Experiential Learning: Art and Science Class Come Together

Through an extension of an existing grant and ArtsinStark, we have created a program linking the arts with science at all of our schools. This grant will provide for a local visiting artist in each of our schools, collaborating with classroom teachers, to explore a series of lessons about animals, habitats, the food chain, fossils, and extinction. This will link learning in our science curriculum with visual arts, and provide for an enriching and creative experience in participating grades. 

 

Art Integrated into the Classroom 

Each of our schools has welcomed ArtsinStark Teaching Artists to complete their 21st Century Learning Initiatives. The Teaching Artists coordinate with 2nd-grade classes to explore learning opportunities by integrating visual and drama artforms into classroom lessons.  This program allows students to learn curriculum in exciting and unique ways while exercising creativity.

 

Art & Design Symposium

Each year, Holy Cross Catholic Schools brings together each of its schools for an art and design showcase. Holy Cross welcomes several community partners such as ArtinStark, Bricks4Kidz, Stark Soil and Water and more to participate in interactive games and activities. This free event gathers over 600 people from Stark County to the Canton Museum of Art for the Symposium to view student artwork, science projects, and theater/musical performances from students in Stark County Catholic Elementary Schools.
