Bishop Connolly’s Visual Arts Program helps each student develop as an artist able to express himself or herself visually in a number of media and dimensions. Our courses introduce students to the basic skills and techniques of drawing, painting and sculpture, as well as the creative process itself. During each course, students are exposed to the history of art and learn ways to look at, talk about and evaluate art. Our program offers a range of courses, from introductory to Advanced Placement levels, including digital photography and drawing.
Throughout the year, students participate in the Massachusetts Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, the UMASS Dartmouth Emerging Young Artists Exhibition and diocesan-wide art shows. Students’ artwork is also on display at BCHS’s Fine Arts Night, our biannual event spotlighting student achievement through the arts.
