Visual Arts

The Visual Arts Program at Nashville Christian School 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. Our visual arts program has been recognized locally and regionally through:

  • Middle Tennessee Regional Student Art Exhibition
  • Scholastic Art Show at Cheekwood
  • Tennessee Governor's School for the Arts
  • Tennessee Art League
  • Renaissance Center Exhibit

Performing Arts

The Performing Arts Program emphasizes a quality stage experience for both the performers and the audience in drama, music, and chorus. Nashville Christian performing arts students have also garnished local and regional attention through: 

  • Presenting 17 Annual productions
  • Winning Regional Emmy awards
  • Appearing on network television shows
  • Receiving recording contracts
  • Working on major motion pictures
  • Participating in community theater with CCCT, Nashville Children's Theater and The Renaissance Center
