The Fine Arts Department
At St. Mary's Ryken, an appreciation of the arts is critical to a well-rounded education. We promote student talent and leadership through a range of classes and clubs that help foster an understanding of the arts.The Fine Arts department provides the student with a better understanding of the visual and performing arts through academic study and performance. Intensive artistic training and performance opportunities are available to students who wish to focus and hone their gifts. Students are guided by faculty who are accomplished, practicing professionals each in their own field.
