Through Xavier’s expansive visual arts curriculum, comprising six classes across all four years, students learn both the history and the techniques of the masters. They also learn to express themselves on the canvas.

The curriculum allows interested students to create competitive art portfolios or auditions for college admissions. Career information for the many college majors that involve the arts is a natural part of the classes here. Our students are accepted to the top creative programs; many with significant scholarships.

Each May, Xavier’s Festival of the Arts showcases students’ work and convenes generations of Xavier alumni in the arts, in an annual celebration of expression and creativity.

Four years of visual art classes at Xavier helped me develop my skills and express my creative side. It is such a unique experience because you get to work with amazing teachers and classmates, and the classes give you a better understanding and appreciation of art.
