At Providence Christian School, the Fine Arts Department seeks to foster the creative impulse in every student, whether their medium of choice is a musical instrument, paint, clay or the stage. Art is a means for interpreting and expressing ideas related to God’s creation. Vincent Van Gogh said, “When I have need of – shall I say – religion, then I go out and paint the stars.” The arts connect us to God, and allow us to communicate ideas related to Him which don’t always lend themselves to mere words.
With each performance or exhibition, both the student and the audience have an opportunity to experience new facets of His glory and grace. Our role in the Fine Arts Department is to oversee and develop all forms of the arts: visual, musical, choral, and dramatic. Throughout the school year, students receive instruction and preparation in these areas, culminating in a full slate of art exhibitions and band, choral and dramatic performances. We strive for excellence and to develop every student’s skills to their fullest potential, in keeping with our mission to “encourage each student to become all that God calls him to be.”
