At Ursuline, being a well-rounded, educated woman includes learning the fundamentals of artistic expression. Courses in the visual and the performing arts provide the foundation for this expression and allow students to follow their interests to advanced levels of study.
The Visual Arts department faculty helps each student express herself artistically and creatively by developing her technical skills and imaginative ideation. Students hone their capabilities for observational learning and explore a variety of art media through hands-on projects that include training in and use of Ursuline’s tools for digital expression.
Participation in the performing arts is a positive, whole-person endeavor that provides the student opportunities to take risks in a supportive environment. Performing arts provide an opportunity for students to develop and foster their communication skills, self-discipline, problem solving, teamwork, leadership, collaboration, and creativity, as well as to heighten their sense of self and the world around them.
