Today’s employers are looking for workers who are creative. They want problem-solvers, critical thinkers, collaborators, and individuals who can hold themselves accountable. At Calvin Christian, our art department teaches students how to master these 21st century skills by utilizing the elements and principles of design and finding their inner artist.
About the Visual Arts Department
Just as God created the heavens, and the earth, so too are we called to create. With each piece of art we are reminded of the importance of staying creative. We create to improve technical skills, but more importantly, we create to show God’s wisdom and heavenly insight while also using our art to encourage, lift up, and shine a light on the many dark days that we and others sometimes face in life is an even greater calling.
Our Art Curriculum
The following courses are what we currently offer. As the years progress, we will continue to adapt to the student body and their interests.
“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.” -Genesis 1:31-2:3
