Student Life: Arts

St. Paul Preparatory School has an active arts department that guides students in developing skills in various disciplines of fine and performing arts.

Fine Arts

Fine Arts at St. Paul Prep aims to combine current or historical events with art lessons, allowing for expression, passion, and relevance within each piece of art.

Students are encouraged to explore their roles as global citizens through their art. They explore past and present issues of human rights, government, and environment through multiple media.

Classes allow more advanced students the opportunity to work semi-independently while students interested in learning more about a new medium receive more detailed instruction.

Students are regularly encouraged to enter their artwork in local and national competitions, where many have been very successful.
