The visual arts program at Faith Christian Academy is designed to bring the best out in each student taking art classes.  Time is given to each child to nurture the talent that God has blessed him or her with.  Art should be enjoyable to view and to do.  At FCA every attempt is made to make art a fun process that will connect with your child.  The art program is designed to strengthen each child’s overall development and build his self-esteem.

Children are taught the basics of art in a way that is easily understandable.  The students easily recognize progress; making each one feel good about their work.  Creativity is a gift from God, and children are encouraged to explore the world of art and to develop their art form or style.

Much time is spent as children learn to draw using geometric shapes as the foundational blocks of skillful drawing.  Children are taught how to use pastels, charcoal, paint, colored pencils and a variety of other tools and media to create pleasing artwork.  Being a freelance illustrator and editorial cartoonist, I especially enjoy teaching the children how to do cartooning and create remarkable illustrations. 

Students are offered after school art classes/clubs to sharpen their artist skills.  Students will enter at least two art contests during the course of the school year.  In the past FCA artists have very well in statewide contests, placing first place several years. God has blessed us with outstanding artists.
