Visual Arts

The Christian School for Performers & Artists

Telling stories without words

We Create

The SVC visual arts program recognizes and values the God-given creative spirit, an essence at the core of all humanity.

Art-making is championed at each school level in an age-appropriate manner. From the youngest learners to the older ones, students develop greater awareness of personal potential, communicate thoughts and feeling through a variety of media, and better perceive and appreciate the world in which they live.

“and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills – to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze,”

Exodus 35:31-32

Elementary

The theme in Elementary art is “Introduce, Inspire, Instruct.” Students are introduced to the work and styles of famous artists selected from historical Byzantine to modern day. The presentation inspires students to replicate each artist’s style and subsequent instruction guides them to produce their own stunning results. A variety of media are employed, including pastel, watercolor, acrylic, pencil, and clay.

Junior High

Hands-on exploration includes a range of experiences such as still life set-ups and rendering, as students study composition, rules of perspective, design terms, and advertising arts. Students flex their creative talents through the use of paint, pencil, pen, ink, charcoal pencils, watercolor, and oil pastels.

High School

The visual arts program in High School is robust. Our charge is to produce excellent visual artists – whether they hold a casual interest or desire a serious pursuit of art — who are capable of understanding, appreciating, and advocating the arts in society, while creatively glorifying God in all they do.

Students have access to four studio arts courses (including Advanced Placement), as well as courses for graphic design, mural art, web design, and interior design. Across all of these offerings, emphasis is placed on igniting creative ideas, and providing the technical instruction and empowering environment necessary to implement those ideas.
