Art Students are honored at Competition
The Art Program
The Bishop Chatard Fine Arts Department offers a robust and challenging selection of art courses to fit the needs of every student who wishes to create and study the visual arts.
Students will enjoy both 2D and 3D art classes and, for those who just wish to appreciate art, we offer AP Art History — a rigorous college-level art history survey course. Classes are taught to develop art making skills that advance to mastery levels. A student can go from our Intro classes of 2D Art, 3D Art and Ceramics and advance up to AP 2D, Drawing and 3D Studio Art.
Students will experiment with a wide variety of art materials and techniques. Art teachers encourage skill development and experimentation. The courses advance in the same way art is taught at the university level.

The Memory Project
BCHS Art Club members receive personal photos from a Memory Project participating school, sketch the portraits and send them back to the school. Sometimes these sketches are the only photos a student will have of themselves. The video below shows displaced Syrian refugee children living in a refugee camp receiving Memory Project photos. The joy on the faces of these lovely children illustrates the healing power of art. Thank you for watching this video.
Arts Service Club
Moderated by BCHS Art Teachers Lisa Johnston and Emily Goff, the Arts Service Club is a student club where students can mix artistic creativity with service. Art has the potential to brighten lives and foster change. The BCHS Art Service Club endeavors to use the creative talents of our students to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Major activities include the Memory Project, making Valentine’s cards for St. Augustine’s residents and other projects where students can serve through art. All are welcome.
