The OLA Art Program serves all students from Junior Kindergarten thru 8th grade. This program exposes students to a variety of art media and techniques including drawing, painting, ceramics, sewing, etc. with an emphasis on folk art and art history (integration of social studies ). Catholic artistic traditions are also integrated into the art program. Students are encouraged to be independent problem solvers when tasked with any particular project, giving ample opportunity for self expression. Student art work is often on display in hallways and classrooms, as well as the Annual Art and Talent Show. OLA students also participate annually in the NM State Fair Youth Art Exhibit and the All Schools Archdiocese Fine Arts Festival. All students use a sketchbook, as well as art portfolio(1st-8th only).
As a ministry of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, OLA Catholic School Community continues the evangelization of the Catholic Church by taking responsibility for:
Education excellence, and
Demonstrating Christ-like behavior.
