St James believes that  integrating art education into the Primary curriculum,  allows students to develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills in a fun creative way. Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills. Participating in art activities helps children to gain the tools necessary for understanding human experience, adapting to and respecting others' ways of working and thinking, developing creative problem-solving skills, and communicating thoughts and ideas in a variety of ways. The art curriculum at St James encourages creativity and expression, and an age appropriate understanding of both art history and technique.
