Visual Arts at Bellarmine

Art is a learned cultural expression. The mission of the Visual Arts at Bellarmine is to support the full scope of that learning process with thoughtful and original student pieces. The growing consciousness of developing artists is represented in the work that they do, from the initial artistic forays of Junior High through High School and college and beyond. The process begins as artists learn to think about their culture and how they fit into it. As the journey continues, they learn to develop and refine their personal aesthetic through intellectual and physical expression, growing into fully defined artists, capable of sharing their experiences, discoveries, insights and cultural understanding with other students who are in the early days of their own journeys, thus completing the cycle.
