What are fine arts in high school

Visual arts

Our vision of the fine arts

Students will develop their God-given creative abilities by reflecting on it, seeking excellence and glorifying God.

Made in the image of our creative God, students? creative skills and talents reflect him. In the SCS art courses, students' visual knowledge, critical thinking and problem solving grow as they create visual art as a form of communication and expression. Since art is to be celebrated and shared, works of art are displayed in the hallways of the school. Local art exhibitions and competitions are also a place to celebrate and recognize the achievements of the incredible artists at SCS!

Students experience a variety of tools and materials such as drawing, painting, fiber art, mixed media, and sculpture as they develop their technical skills and improve their artistic expression and visual storytelling. In addition to making art, students learn art history and art recognition in relation to the various learning units.
