Visual Arts Program
Training in creation, understanding, and appreciation of the arts
The visual arts program at Eastside Christian School teaches students that being made in God’s image imbues each individual with a creative spirit. As students participate in Discipline-Based Art Education (DBAE) theory, they hone their creativity and learn the value of expressing creativity as a way to glorify God.
Discipline-Based Art Education provides a well-rounded view of art by teaching four disciplines: Art Production, Art History, Art Criticism, and Aesthetics. As students practice these disciplines, they learn to create, understand, and appreciate the visual arts more effectively.
Kindergarten through eighth grade students participate in art on a weekly basis, working with a variety mediums to develop their skills. Mediums include painting, drawing, sculpting, ceramics, and printmaking. The visual art program also introduces students to more technological-based art like graphic design.
"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." - Ephesians 2:10
