Women of the Arts

Fine and Performing Arts

Marian’s Fine and Performing Arts Department includes courses in art, drama, and music. 

Art classes foster an appreciation and awareness of the beauty in the world.  They inspire students to become aware of their hidden potentials and gifts, challenge their creativity, and encourage them to convey their feelings and thoughts through the visual media.  Students are instructed in the skills and disciplines necessary to create a fine work of art.

Drama classes are offered from beginning to advanced levels in which students perform by studying techniques, vocal projection, movement, script analysis and technical production.  The advanced class presents contemporary and classical plays in repertory performances each spring. 

Marian’s vocal music classes encourage the development of a well-rounded student through participation and study in music.  Marian strives to offer a variety of musical experiences from the beginning level to more advanced, through several performing groups, including Women’s Ensemble, Concert Choir, Melodies, and Liturgical Choir.  Instrumental music classes are offered through Brother Rice High School.
