The Fine Arts Program of Rejoice Christian School, elementary-high school, is based completely upon the belief that God has endowed each of us with the gift of creation, with wisdom and understanding, as it is stated in Exodus 31.  Each of our students at Rejoice has gifts from our Creator, and as teachers, mentors and facilitators, we are endowed with the blessing of cultivating and encouraging these gifts.  From kindergarten through graduation, each student has ample opportunity to express themselves with certified master level teachers in Drawing, Watercolor, Oil Painting, Acrylic, Ceramics, Sculpture, Multimedia, Graphic Design, Calligraphy and Fiber Arts.  

Nicole Lotz, Elementary Art Teacher and Anita Yocum, Middle School/High School Art Teacher believe that with the Arts we “do not conform to the pattern of this world, but are transformed by the renewing of the mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-His good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2. Through the arts, a student will develop a deeper understanding of himself, others and academics. Students are taught that creativity is a gift from our Heavenly Father that we use to honor Him. These gifts manifest themselves in a myriad of ways- everyone has their own type of creativity. It is our honor to facilitate the development of these gifts. “Whatever you do, so it as unto the Lord.” Col. 3:23

“God puts in each of us his own creativity and what and how we use that creativity is up to each of us. As we learn different ways of using and expressing that creativity we learn new ways of worshiping and honoring God. Your creativity is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.”
