The High School Art Program is designed to help students as they form their final conclusions about what art is and what is means in the Christian life.
- Introductory Art, focuses on skill and technique, in an attempt to create an appreciation for what is involved in the visual arts.
- Intermediate Art, does more of the same but gives slightly more open-ended assignments to give the students more room for creativity.
- Advanced Art, year three, gives the students much more room to create and make their own choices about their work. They encouraged to meet the project requirements in their own creative way.
- Portfolio Preparation & Art Appreciation: The first semester is aimed at developing a portfolio for college acceptance, and the second semester is focused on developing ideas and philosophies of art.
The classes contain some homework in form of weekly sketchpad drawings. They also have a paper once every quarter as they read through “The State of the Arts,” a book by Gene Edward Veith which helps develop a Christian sensibility towards the arts.
Extra curricular activities include First Friday, Film Forum, Art Club, art workshops, the Winter Gala and the Spring Fine Arts Festival.
Above all, the program is designed to reach each student individually and show them how they can glorify God through everything they make and do.
