The Arts

We value the arts, encouraging all students to develop their creative and design thinking, curiosity and abilities. The College offers studies in Art, Digital Film, Drama, Music, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Theatre Studies and Visual Communication Design. These areas also generate a rich variety of co-curricular opportunities.

Individual tuition is available in a broad range of instruments, voice and public speaking. Our many musical ensembles include string orchestras and quartets, concert bands, choir, stage bands, brass and the symphonic orchestra.

Marcellin enjoys a strong reputation in the community and our annual musical productions are always a highlight. We have developed a partnership with Our Lady of Mercy College, Heidelberg to stage our annual junior and musical productions.

Active involvement in the Arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skill. Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork. We don’t believe that Arts education should be based purely on its social or economic benefits, but because it expands the mind and soul. Furthermore the Arts provide students with problem-solving skills, innovative mindsets, creative expression, communicative attitudes and inspiration. It provides students with the space to nurture their own creative habits of mind: imagination, curiosity, discipline, resilience and collaboration.
