Enrichment Opportunities

Art Club

Art students, active members from the previous year, and those seriously interested in enriching the school community through visual art should join in September. Activities include workshops in lettering, jewelry making and other art media that enhance what is offered in class. Mural painting, set designing for the fall musical and drama department, visits with contemporary Philadelphia artists and field trips will also be enjoyed by club members. Students meet once a month in the art studio.

Digital Photography Club

Students will explore the digital camera starting with the basics, such as camera resolution and how it effects a digital image. The club will use Adobe Photoshop to retouch old or damaged photographs, scan negatives, slides, objects and photographs. Students will discover ways to manipulate a photograph through the use of Adobe Photoshop filters to enhance an image. This club is open to all interested students who have a digital camera.

Weaving Club

Rooted in and propelled forth by the Mission of the Sisters of Saint Joseph as lace makers and women attuned to the miseries of day, we weave to serve the poor and the destitute continuing a legacy that has lasted for over 150 years.
