Visual Arts

At St Mary's College, we promote a deeper appreciation and love of the arts through immersion in Adelaide art culture. A variety of art, craft and design skills are introduced and developed through the three basic processes of creating, presenting and appreciating works of Art and Craft and Design.

St Mary's aims to guide students to find their own voice through artistic expression and develop self-confidence and improved self-esteem through diverse art experiences. Learning high-quality art skills empowering students in the creation of their own art. 

Art focuses on the ways, means, and ends of skilled creative, visual expression. St Mary's encourages this visual expression through exploration of both 2D and 3D creations, art exhibitions and innovative art genres. Students are able to experience fun and excitement in the early years through to developing growth mindset, risk taking and critical thinking skills in the senior years.
