Art Program - Secondary
Art at RRCA aims to encourage the creative processes of visual artists. The strength of our curriculum lies in an intentional blend of teaching the art elements and the principles of design with a goal of fostering life-long skills of problem-solving translatable to many areas of life. Research supports the idea that artists who are able to navigate beyond the obstacles of resistance and hesitancy to successful execution continue on a path of lifelong artistic endeavors. An art teacher/mentor plays a vital role in equipping young artists with the skills that grow confidence in their craft. RRCA’s art program provides foundational technique in drawing, color theory and exposure to a variety of mediums as well as more advanced methods in painting, pastels, charcoal, and fiber arts. Our art club has a program called, ArtReach, which seeks out opportunities to share our talents and skills with those who may not have access to visual art activities. Art students at RRCA are given opportunities to participate in the Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE), Scholastic Art Competitions, and Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) Art District and State Competitions.
