Celebrating Students' Artistic
Accomplishments and Performances
ASH Students are Creative

We are thrilled to host our first in-person gallery exhibit in two years. The gallery in the Colton Fine Arts Center will be filled with Upper School and Middle School student artwork, and patrons will have the opportunity to purchase artwork. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the artist. With live music and performances, this celebration will feel like an art walk on Julia Street! 
Guests must show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours.
If you would like to volunteer to help that evening, please email Rosary Arts League Chair Krystil Lawton at krystil@cox.net.
Sacred Heart joined other Catholic schools in the city to participate in the annual Catholic Schools Week Art Show at Lakeside Mall early last month.
After seeing the Catholic Schools Week Art Show exhibit, The Composting Network purchased a painting by ASH artist Laney Calhoun '22 for display in their business office! Laney also recently won numerous awards for mixed media works and paintings through the National Scholastic Art and Writings Awards competition.
The ASH art department is happy to announce it has been approved to receive funding for new Brent pottery wheels for the ceramics classroom on the mezzanine. Four new wheels have been ordered. We have no doubt our student artists will put them to good use soon!

In November, Emily Dufour '25 competed and earned a gold award for her musical theater solo as part of the touring Radix Dance Convention in Biloxi. Emily is a company member with Off Broadway Dance Studio.
Many talented ASH students danced in beautiful productions of The Nutcracker during the holidays.

Three ASH students also participated in Brother Martin High School’s fall production of Zombie Prom.
