Mercy’s four-year Visual Arts Program is for students with serious interest in developing their artistic skills, and in potentially pursuing the visual arts (such as painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.) in college or in their future career.

The sequence of classes is designed to prepare students to create a varied portfolio to be submitted for Advanced Placement Studio Art credit in the senior year. Art students at Mercy explore the elements, principles, and history of art, develop their observational, creative and critical skills, and learn to work in a variety of media—pencils, charcoal, clay, acrylics, tempera, watercolor, and more. Mercy’s visual artists have gone on to exceptional careers as professional painters, art instructors, graphic designers, and fashion designers. 


Mercy’s Dance Troupe is for serious students of dance who are continuing to develop their performance skills and perfect their technique.

The Mercy Dance Troupe is selected by audition in the second semester of the 8th grade or in the fall of every year while at Mercy. Dance Troupe earns academic credit, while exploring the genres of ballet, modern dance, and jazz dance, and performing several times during the year both within and outside the school community. Mercy’s Dance Troupe has appeared at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in the Archdiocesan Celebration of the Arts, in the CCBC holiday performance of Our Favorite Things with the Baltimore Symphonic Band, and at the National Association of Independent Schools conference. This dual emphasis on both the technical and artistic training provides not only a solid, comprehensive foundation, but also an exciting and enjoyable experience. In Dance Troupe, the dancer not only works with the Director of Dance, Ms. Gloria Lang, and the Assistant Director, Ms. Shianne Antoine, but also with professional guest artists, choreographers, and teachers. Members of Dance Troupe have earned awards in the Maryland Distinguished Scholar Program, and have studied dance at the baccalaureate level and beyond after graduation. Some are teaching or performing as dance professionals.
In addition to the Dance Troupe program, the Fundamentals of Dance Workshop offers a basic dance program in ballet, modern, and jazz with the purpose of building beginning dance skills. Invitations to the workshop will be sent after Dance Troupe auditions.
