Since the beginning of time, God instilled in humans a desire to communicate through drawings and symbols. Not only were they used for language, but also to express feelings and emotions. In our Visual Art classes, the students will learn to express themselves through worship using various mediums, and create pieces that ultimately express the awesomeness of God they see surrounding them every day.
Visual Art Classes: This year we will be learning the Principals of Art through practice using a variety of methods such as drawing, painting, sculpting, and mixed medias. We will also be cultivating a little love for Art History as we study some of the people and pieces that have been heralded in the art world over time. Our budding artists will also get to share their talents with our Theatre Department by doing some projects throughout the year that are in conjunction with productions being staged.
Advanced Art: Exploring Mediums and Techniques (ages 13+; previous experience preferred): We are created in the image of God. As a result, we appreciate beauty in creation and we desire to create beautiful things as well. In this class we will seek to offer our talents as an offering of praise to God in response to the gifts He has given us. Our focus will be on developing the students skills in a variety of mediums with an emphasis on painting techniques in acrylic and oil. We will also work on specific projects throughout the year related to the productions that the Theatre department has planned.
