Faith Christian Academy is blessed to offer a fine arts program for our students. Art is offered once a week for elementary students in the first through sixth grades. Students experience a variety of art mediums and materials using the seven basic elements of art; line, shape, color, texture, space, value and form. Being a Classical school, we like to expose the students to great artists and works of art of our heritage.
Each month a masterpiece is displayed as students observe and learn about the artwork and artist.
At the high school level, students are offered a course in Art History/ Art Appreciation. This class meets once a week for a semester. It is an introduction to European Art History and the cultural elements that have influenced the art and artists of the day. Students will experience critiquing art, developing an eye for artistic elements.
Students will also be introduced to the elements of art and principles of design as they experience art mediums and techniques in art projects.
Here is a small collection of artwork created by our FCA students, beginning with our annual Fine Arts Evening art entries:
