Visual Arts Program - Guides students in a “hands on” discovery of the arts. They will learn that visual art is a universal tool for communication and understanding. Through the producing and studying of art, students will gain a better understanding of God, themselves and others. They will learn to develop thinking and verbal skills through project discussions and critiques.  Art helps to form connections between other subjects as well, such as descriptive communication in language, experimentation in science, the awareness of patterns in math and connections to historical times and places.

At Nashville Christian School we encourage our students to DREAM, help them to understand what they BELIEVE, and equip them with the tools they need to DO. Through strategic instruction and Christian examples, student minds and talents are molded and enriched intellectually, spiritually, physically, and artistically.  Through Visual and Performing Arts, our students are encouraged to express their creativity and gifts.
