Fine Arts Overview

Why the Arts?

“Research shows that children who study the arts demonstrate stronger overall academic performance. Art programs improve students’ self-confidence, build communication and problem-solving skills and prepare young people to be the creative thinkers that employers seek for today’s workforce.”  

–National Assembly of State Arts Agencies

 

“In a national sample of 25,000 students, those with high levels of arts learning experiences earned higher grades and scored higher on standardized tests than those with little or no involvement in the arts, regardless of socioeconomic status.”  –National Assembly of State Arts Agencies

 

 

“The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.”

Psalm 65:8 

Why Christian Arts?

 

“The Temple alone included both abstract art and representational art, works that were purely decorative and works that were complexly symbolic. Clearly God, the ultimate Artist who created every detail of the universe purely from His own imagination, values the arts."  
From “State of the Arts” by Gene Edward Veith, Jr. 

 

“Properly considered, the arts are inestimable gifts of God. They can enrich our lives. They have a spiritual dimension and can enhance our relationship to God and to our neighbors. The Bible itself sanctions the arts, describing the gifts God has given to artists and recounting in loving detail works of art that were ordained by God to manifest His glory and to enrich His people." 

From “State of the Arts” by Gene Edward Veith, Jr.

“He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers—all of them skilled workers and designers.”
