Visual Arts

Our Philosophy: NCCE has a comprehensive art curriculum that enriches the lives of all of our students.  Our students learn about artists, styles and cultures while creating both two and three dimensional art using a variety of different mediums.  Art can be seen as you walk down the hallways past murals, student displays, and our continuing permanent student art gallery.  Nouvel participates in two area art shows, the state art show, and our own Fine Art Show in the spring.  Many of our students have won awards for their art work.

General Music

Our Philosophy: Our music education program is a part of the well-rounded education your child receives at our school.  We believe it improves our students’ learning in all of the core academic subjects.  And most importantly music enhances our students’ worship to our Lord in their classrooms and during our weekly Mass.
