3-4th grade students meet one day a week. 5th grade students meet two days for art, and 6th grade meet three days a week.
7-8th grade students are able to choose Art in either a 2,3 or 5 day schedule. We currently offer two sections of Senior High art. Students are encouraged to use a variety of methods to communicate their ideas visually. They also enjoy the opportunity to glorify God through many of their art projects and murals during the school year. The use of the Word of God in their art work is encouraged and incorporated into many classroom activities.
