Visual Arts

Visual Art instruction is based on the understanding that God our creator has instilled in us creative qualities that should be used to bring Him glory.

Art is offered through a variety of methods, mediums, and technologies throughout the academic program (K-12). Students will experience information and training in many ways, including, but not limited to the following: basic elements of art, art history and appreciation, expressions of art, and many hands on opportunities to produce original works through a variety of artistic mediums.


God has endowed each individual with creative talents to be expressed in every arena of life relationships, personal enrichment, artistic growth, personal ministry, and career. This course is designed to help students explore and cultivate their unique, God-given talents and share them in a variety of settings. Training in the performing arts is essential to the educational experience of all students. Not only are students given an avenue to share their God-given talents and express themselves in a way that is as unique as the talents they possess, but training in the performing arts also improves five essential elements of personal development:

     1. Awareness of God, self, and others
     2. Discipline
     3. Confidence
     4. Creative/Critical problem-solving skills
     5. Self-esteem
All students should have opportunities for early success in their creative endeavors in order to reach their fullest personal potential.

Students will explore a multitude of performing arts while cultivating their personal performing skills by exploring acting theory, voice development, character development, playwriting, play structure, improvisation, stage terminology, directing, and physical stagecraft and production.
