FINE & PERFORMING ARTS

16

Since the time the Jesuits launched their first school in 1548, they have understood that the fine and performing arts, joined with all the other branches of knowledge, are a powerful means to develop imagination, feelings, conscience and intellect. Loyola’s fine and dramatic arts program develops the skills, techniques and knowledge needed for the student to be able to reveal himself and his perceptions of the world through creativity. Students can participate in productions in the renowned Hannon Theatre Company, perform in concert with the music department, create a film for our annual film festival or build a portfolio of exceptional visual AP Studio Art to be submitted to the AP Board for review. Fun, fast-paced and intense, Loyola’s arts program readies students for the rigors of a college-level art environment.
