R ejoice Christian Schools’ Art Department strives to bring the students fundamental knowledge of the subject through fun and challenging projects.  Each class is given a certain elemental focus yet, based on the class, the projects turn out as different as the students themselves.  Along with the other subjects taught at RCS, students will learn that when they create, they are living up to the image of a wonderful God. RCS Art classes strive to help students learn more about the abilities God has blessed them with.

“The fact that God is a creator and that man is made in His image suggests that man is innately creative. An education which includes the Arts does help to form a well-rounded individual; however, there are much more compelling reasons to teach the Arts. Understanding Art, philosophy and how Art reflects philosophy will enable a greater comprehension of present-day life and culture as well as the past. Understanding the criteria for evaluating the elements which comprise good Art will access realms of God-given creativity for study and appreciation. Teaching a child the needed skills to create in a specific medium will afford the opportunity to reflect God’s creativity. These higher aims have a greater value than merely offering a vague enrichment.”
