As human beings made in the image of the creator God, who not only made trees but made them “pleasing to the eye,” we are creative by nature. In the arts program, we want our students to grow as creators, to become more and more like him. Art classes are offered to students beginning in first grade. Students participate in a variety of activities to enhance their learning, such as painting, drawing, sculpting, weaving, and printmaking. Biblical principles are woven into the lessons, as is the study of major artists throughout history. Middle School students are introduced to keeping sketchbooks in order to practice creative thinking and problem solving. High School students develop the skill and habit of thinking critically about what images communicate. Classes available for high school include sculpture, printmaking, painting, photography, and drawing.
