The visual art program in Middle School encourages students to explore their God-given creativity and look at the world in unique ways. When students look with awe and wonder at all that God has created, it inspires them to let their own imaginations soar. They learn to see possibilities and creative solutions. They discover their artistic voice through creative expression and become innovative problem solvers that impact the world for Christ.
Every week students enter the art room to explore avenues of creativity and design. We always enjoy seeing the projects created by our kids! Each spring, we host a Fine Arts Night in a setting much like an art gallery complete with hors d’oeuvres, refreshments, and desserts all served by students! Parents and other family members enjoy seeing our students’ creativity on display.
