Made to create: how the fine arts point to Christ

The benefits of fine arts education are numerous and well-documented (see links below). Students have an opportunity to learn in a fresh environment and stimulate activity in parts of the brain that may not be reached in the academic classroom. They experience a sense of community and team building in musical groups. They develop language and motor skills and connect with a broader culture.

But to the Christian student, an even better opportunity presents itself in the study of fine arts. We see Christ. The Creator of the world, in whose image we are made, relishes the beauty of art. We bring glory to God by sculpting, painting, and singing. And our students gain valuable skills that will allow them to live Christ in the local church.

 

“Christians have deeper and better foundations for serious art than anybody.” — John Piper

 

Northside Christian School provides a vibrant fine arts department for all students. We have art classes for K5 through 12th grades. All grades participate in vocal music. Secondary students can participate in drama as an elective and audition for the spring play or musical. Occasionally elementary students have opportunities to participate. Competitions and other performances provide goals and deadlines that help us produce our best work.
