Course Description: Art

Philosophy Statement
God is the ultimate and original Creator, Artist, and Communicator (Gen. 1; Jn.1); and He created man in His own
image (Gen. 1:27). Therefore, in order that students may be better equipped to fulfill God’s creative image and
communicative purposes for them they should be encouraged to develop their understanding of how and why
humanity communicates through creating art in its various mediums and forms. By learning how to consider and
evaluate art, and in using the themes of spirituality, the self, nature, and the city, students will be enabled to use the
context of art to both appreciate art and evaluate it. As God is inherently artistic and his artistic fingerprint is found
in all nature, we His image bearers should develop the ability to express ourselves artistically and appreciate the
artistic side of all that is around us. This course will also encourage students to test and see from a Christian
perspective a wide variety of art expressions that lead to truth, meaning, and redemption. Students will learn that in
God’s wisdom he has created us with diverse talents and abilities and art itself has multiple forms of expression.
They will learn to harness these forms and express and appreciate a variety of visial artistic genres. God has made us
with inquiring minds and He wants to guide us into all truth through His Spirit (John 16:13).

appeal and portrays specific skills.
