Visual Arts

 

The understanding and appreciation of the finest works of man's creative spirit are necessary for a complete education. Effective instruction in the visual arts provides the student with technical skills and motivation to develop an awareness of his environment and to increase his aesthetic and cultural understanding.   

The Visual Arts Curriculum organized at Briarcrest Christian Schools is both vertical and horizontal in approach. Visual Artists/Art Educators, Tonya Loyd (Houston Levee Elementary School), Cindy Thompson (East Memphis Elementary School), Melody Weintraub (Middle School) and Jenna Fergus (High School) contribute their individual discipline-based curricula to formulate a balanced and age-appropriate art experience for all students. Through the implementation of a cross-cultural and cross-curricular based approach, each instructor intentionally connects art history and art making to Math, Science, History and Writing. The visual arts are taught from a biblical perspective relating art production to art history, criticism and aesthetics.
