More Art Please

For more than fifty years, St. Veronica’s Catholic School has served the very diverse community of families in the largely working-class community of South San Francisco.   During these years our school has been a safe haven for families of many different backgrounds finding a middle ground between high academic standards, the teaching of ethical values and affordable tuition.

The Arts Fund is a grass roots parent led volunteer initiative highly supported by the administration and teachers that is building a quality year-round arts enrichment program for our students including:

  • Art in Action! A parent led nationally recognized arts classroom curriculum currently being utilized at St. Veronica and in need of additional funding to expand the program ⇒ program details
  • Art architecture with Owen Fritts, world acclaimed Eco-Art sculptor and architect ⇒ program details.
  • An eco-friendly, self-sustaining garden imagined, designed, built and maintained by kids ⇒ program details.
  • Art Moves! with Dr. Lance T. McCready, internationally acclaimed researcher on urban education and Parent, Sarah Kornfeld, co-founder and Chief Curation Officer at SM+ART (the science + art of brain power) ⇒ program details
  • A cello is and does what? with Jennifer Kloetzel, Founder of the Bay Areas Cypress String Quartet ⇒ program details
  • Rocket Art with Johanna Karr, parent and rocket scientist at Lockheed Martin Space Systems ⇒ program details

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
