St. Raphael School strives to educate students to become creative, critical thinkers who enjoy music, art and dance. Art provides students with the opportunity to express themselves and is incorporated into academic lessons. Teachers in lower grades incorporate painting, drawing, coloring and music in their weekly lessons. Science, social studies and religious education also include an art component.
Junior high teaches art as a separate subject. Teachers plan full art lessons with focus on color theory and art appreciation. Lessons are taught once a week.
While St. Raphael does not have an art curriculum, teachers pursue training through the Internet and other sources.
