“To create one’s world in any of the arts takes courage.” -Georgia O’Keeffe

This week, our Ursuline girls from T2 through Senior Sioux will share art with our community to demonstrate their creative gifts, as well as their courage, by taking God’s world and interpreting it through the arts. Music, art, and drama provide avenues to express the beauty of our world in tangible, human terms. When delving into the arts, one must move beyond basic skills in order to bring forth her own view of the world as a creative expression.

Whether understanding basic techniques, reading music, or working in various mediums, art moves one through essential skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity to deliver a viewpoint through dance, drama, writing, art or music. Art helps give joy and beauty, along with understanding, as we see the world interpreted through the eyes of another.

Steeped in fine arts, an Ursuline education develops student's talents to encompass growth of the whole person. Our Ursuline Arts Festival is one of many great opportunities to showcase and celebrate these talents. Please join us Thursday at 3pm to witness a glimpse of our Ursuline girls' courage as displayed through their artistic gifts.
