WE INSPIRE CREATIVITY

VISUAL ARTS

Art classes are designed to bring out the artist in everyone, from the beginner to the more seasoned artist. Our art teachers proudly display student work of every age and skill level. Painting, drawing, printmaking, designing, sculpting and dimensional art are some of the disciplines taught.

Students participate in local competitions and art events where they continue to place with high honors. The school year culminates with an annual Art Festival sponsored by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), where our students’ work is showcased alongside that of peers from other Christian schools. HCA students consistently win awards for their work.

High school students have the opportunity to engage in hands-on studio art projects within the framework of art history, taking an in depth look at the elements and principles of art. In Art and Culture I and II, students study an overview of art history in different cultures within a Christian worldview, as well as the progression of western art and culture through the Middle Ages and Renaissance, up to the twentieth century.
