The St.Ignatius Parish School Art Program follows the California
State Visual Arts Content Standards. The Preschool,
Transitional-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten teachers provide
hands-on art experiences in their classrooms. The first through
eighth grade students receive additional art
instruction once a week with the art teacher in
the art room, an art-studio-style environment designed to
facilitate all aspects of visual art media, from viewing
reproductions of famous artworks to drawing to painting to clay
sculpting and all manner of creative expression. The
program also involves introduction to various artists, periods in
art history and cultures, art appreciation and critique, and an
annual student art show which coincides with the school’s open
house. An art club is also available to students in grades five
through eight who wish to further pursue their interest in
Note to parents: Most student artwork remains stored at
school until the end of the school year so that it can be
exhibited in the Art Show and on bulletin board displays
throughout the year, and also so it won’t get crumpled
in backpacks on the way home. Near the end of the year, the
students will carry their artwork home neatly in their Paper Bag
Portfolios. Please see the Art Photo Gallery for pictures of
student work as it is posted. Thank you.
Although there was not an Open House Art Show this year, keep an eye out for details about next year's show.To see more pictures of our past art shows, click on the Art Show Photo Gallery in the Curriculum tab.
