“If God made the flowers, they are worth painting and writing about. If God made the birds, they are worth painting. If God made the sky, the sky is worth painting. If God made the ocean, indeed it is worth writing poetry about. It is worth man’s while to create works upon the basis of the great works God has already created.” Francis A. Schaeffer
Students will learn to explore and express themselves with tools, media and processes in a range of art forms. They continue to develop the understanding that we are reflecting God’s creation through the process of art, understanding that God is the supreme artist and creation is His artwork. Students will use the basic elements of art to communicate their observations, ideas and imaginations. The students will develop an understanding and appreciation of the visual artworks of others, and different cultures by responding to artworks they make and view.
