Jesuit students are introduced to the images, language, and techniques of the art world. In the Ignatian tradition students are encouraged to perform the action of creating art. They are given freedom to try, to struggle, and to express themselves through a variety of different media. They are also given time to reflect on their own aesthetic experiences: students are asked to contemplate how their current culture and spaces fit into the context of a broader art history. Teachers expose students to local artists, galleries, and museums and are committed to keeping current on constantly evolving technologies in art.
