At Our Lady of Malibu School, the creative activities of our Art program provide critical building blocks in our child’s development.   We are devoted not only to the refinement of visual skills but to the cultivation of the mind.  Specific areas of development include refining motor skills (through painting and drawing), strengthening problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and overall increased innovation through expression and the art creation that carry into their adult lives.  Students must bring creative force and imagination to their own development, where through our activities, we stimulate and appreciate their quality.

At Our Lady of Malibu School, the creative activities of our Art program provide critical building blocks in your child’s development. Specific areas of development include refining motor skills, strengthening problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and overall increased innovation and expression through art creation. Our Art program combines exploring the elements of art (color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value), using an array of mediums, and exposure to past, present, and upcoming artists. We are devoted not only to the refinement of visual art skills but to the cultivation of the mind.
