Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:26a & 27.
We are made in the image of a wonderfully creative God. When we create, in art or in other areas, we are exercising the attribute of creativity that God has bestowed upon us. The elements of art, including color, form, texture, pattern, balance, rhythm, etc. are part of God’s creation, and testify to God’s existence and His creativity (Psalm 19:1-3).Our art program allows kindergarten through fifth grade students to participate in classroom teacher-led classes where they learn to use the elements of art and various art techniques to complete projects. After students learn the basic concepts and techniques of drawing, painting, and sculpture, students expand their skills through a number of different mediums including watercolors, pastels, paper maché and clay.Middle and high school students may take art elective classes that allow them to further develop concepts and techniques. Offerings have included drawing/painting, multi-media/sculpture, ceramics, videography, and digital photography.
Weaving the biblical narrative through classes is foundational to FFCS teaching across all grade levels. Mrs. Bourne’s high school art students have created a wonderful Linocut re-telling “God’s Great Rescue Story.” We encourage you to share this with your children!←Click the image to view!
