Virgen, Mrs. Monica » Home


My name is Monica Virgen and I am the SS. Felicitas and Perpetua Art Teacher.

I believe Art education is very important to the enhancement of students' creativity. I feel that we are all artists and I appreciate the talent that each and every one of your children brings to the table.

Art classes are designed to teach and build upon the 7 Elements of Art: Line, Shape, Color, Value, Texture, Form and Space. All projects allow for individual student creativity while learning techniques essential to meeting the guidelines of the Visual Art Standards for their grade level. Each year the students learn about "Featured Artists". All projects are created with these artists in mind while also incorporating Art History into the curriculum. In short, my goal is to help the students increase their skills by teaching design elements while learning techniques used by famous artists. 
I am very proud of all of my students and have been so impressed by all the art they have created. The students at SSFP have won several art awards in local competitions and I look forward to 2018-2019 when we will be celebrating all of our new accomplishments.
