Bishop Foley Catholic Art Mission Statement 

Education should focus largely on problem solving, as it is a single skill required of every potential endeavor. Art education specifically serves this purpose because it breeds creativity and creative thinking is at the root of all problem solving.

As esteemed educator Viktor Lowenfeld states:
Remember you are not [necessarily] trying to make your child an artist. It is [their] creativeness you care about: [their] sensitivity, originality, adaptability, fluency, flexibility, and the powers of synthesis, analysis and redefinition… some day, [they will use it]… medicine, business, law, or science, and you may have reason to be extraordinarily proud of that little boy or girl who sprawled on the living room rug with a box of broken crayons filling large sheets of cheap paper with figments of childish imagination.

Along with teaching self-expression, practicing creativity and problem solving is the primary focus of art education at Bishop Foley. In order to serve these functions, we choose effective teaching methods, highlight communication skills, create an innovative environment, and promote diversity in the classroom.
