SouthLake Christian Academy believes that a well-rounded education includes instruction in Fine Arts. The arts have numerous developmental benefits including perceptual, cognitive, affective, and psychomotor learning. Therefore, we encourage students to be actively engaged in the arts to nurture their creative abilities and expand their appreciation for drama, music, and visual arts. Whether they are learning to capturing an intricate and fragile image through photography or creating a character on stage, our students learn to express themselves through art.
The Fine Arts Department pursues its mission through a three-fold approach.
The Spiritual Approach
The Fine Arts Department emphasizes artistic expression as a form of worship and intentionally creates awareness of God’s creative attributes as being the source of all artistic ability.
The Cognitive Approach
The Fine Arts Department will develop procedural knowledge in theory and practice in order to promote the curricular and performance standards in each respective discipline. The transferable skills attained through studying the arts engage various subjects across the curriculum. The Fine Arts Department will employ various means of instruction, that will include visual, kinesthetic, auditory, and technology methods.
The Social Approach
The Fine Arts Department creates a supportive environment that builds individual confidence and provides opportunities for collaboration through exhibits, performances and various forms of church and community outreach.
The Fine Arts Department cultivates creativity through a Christian world-view to foster cognitive and social development as we pursue excellence in artistic expression.
