Saint Benedict Art Program

Saint Benedict Art Program

Welcome to the Saint Benedict’s Art Program. My name is Sharon Brand and I have been teaching art for over 30 years in the Buffalo Diocese. I enjoy engaging my students in the creative process. Our program focuses on the NYS standards in art as well as utilizing the new common core and STREAM additions. Students in grades PreK – 8 experience working through knowledge and use of the elements and principles of art during their creation of works of art. Drawing, painting, crayon, marker, paper construction, oil pastel, charcoal and various other materials are encountered by students. Art history is often engaged to further enhance each student’s art education. A high school level Studio in Art course is offered for selected 8th grade students to provide opportunity for advanced art study. Our program provides opportunity for self expression, creative thinking, learning and mastering use of various art materials and engaging the creative spirit. Art is the smile of the soul. We all can be artists…it is right there inside each of us.
