"The purpose of fine arts education is to share the creative vision of how God is present in our human experiences. Classic images of Catholic art illustrate how this presence is expressed in a variety of cultures. The sacramental dimension of the Catholic tradition is expressed and evidenced by celebrating the importance of the arts and music in the liturgy. Students will learn about the vast contributions of the Church to the fine arts. In addition, other forms of music, art and drama that are chosen for students to explore will be oriented toward beauty and goodness."

Students at Resurrection develop their creative abilities in art. Our certified art teacher promotes problem-solving, curiosity, and individuality through crafted lessons. Students’ art is displayed throughout the building. In addition to the weekly art classes, art is also integrated into other subject areas by classroom teachers.
Through singing, exploring music concepts, and developing instrument skills, students at Resurrection develop their musical talents and learn about music theory. Students have opportunities for class and school-wide performances throughout the year. Participation in drama is also made possible through after-school programs and partnerships with Bishop Ward High School.
Students receive Physical Education in addition to daily recess. Instruction is designed to develop motor skills, knowledge of concepts and strategies related to movement, increase physical performance and fitness levels, and develop healthy behavior, The P.E. teacher infuses lessons with health and nutrition components, and also works with classroom teachers to build on science concepts.
Students at Resurrection are exposed to a wide range of activities that are developmentally appropriate for increasing physical fitness, motor skill development, and a healthy lifestyle. Students participate in both sport related activities, as well as fitness based concepts during their physical education time. They learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness through individual activities, while also learning how to work as a team in group activities. Our hope is that students will apply what they learn about living a healthy and active lifestyle to their life in other ways outside of the school day.
