Visual Arts

Infused with the Gospel, the Visual Arts Department at SCS motivates our students to develop and strengthen their God-given creativity and imagination, and hone their artistic abilities.

The Fine Arts Department at SCS seeks to DEFINE, REFINE, and SOLIDIFY creativity, critical thinking, artistic skills, and the importance of Christ when building our foundation. We instill in our students the importance of the arts as a medium of communication and expression that reinforces our commitment to praising and honoring the Lord in everything that we do.

Lower School

Students are immersed in the seven elements of art: line, shape, color, space, value, form and texture. Lower school students are in the DEFINE stage where they begin to understand art concepts and vocabulary while using an array of art media and materials. Throughout the year, art styles, genres, artists (past and present) and art history will be introduced in all classes.

Middle School

The 6th – 8th grade experience provides students with the opportunity to REFINE their knowledge and mastery of the elements and principles of art, as they continue to develop a strong and solid foundation. This allows them to master concepts and flourish in their creative development.

High School

During the High school years, we work to SOLIDIFY artistic foundations. Students delve into diverse art techniques, explore different tools, mediums, and Art History. Interdisciplinary challenges provide opportunities that nourish and strengthen the growth of individual abilities, artistic confidence, problem solving, and critical thinking.
