Visual Arts

At Mount Saint Joseph Academy, we value the transformative power of art. Under the guidance of professional artists and art history scholars, students learn through a combination of hands-on projects, critical discussions and independent research. Each studio class focuses on enhancing students’ ability to interpret and master visual language while providing students access to industry standard resources including the Adobe Creative Suite a 3D printer and a large format Epson printer.

With an extensive range of courses and an annual Arts Festival, the Mount is a wonderful place for students to grow and expand their artistic selves.
