The Fine Arts Program at Calvary is designed to expand students’ learning beyond the core curriculum. Providing a secure platform and professional instruction to develop effective art skills, the program engages students to see what they look at, hear what they listen to, and feel what they touch. Through small group and hands-on instruction, students will broaden their understanding and elicit excitement for the many wonderful applications of art and design.
The goal of the Fine Arts curriculum is to create individual portfolios showcasing a broad range of artistic skills and mediums as the children, beginning in Transitional Kindergarten, advance through their years at Calvary. In addition to the traditional art skill sets of drawing, painting and ceramics, students receive instruction in digital drawing, architecture, textiles (hand sewing, felt work, weaving, embroidery and cross stitch), set design, and graphic arts. Artistic exploration through photography and iPad photography is also offered, teaching composition and history of photography as both an art form and a commercial practice.
