The Classical art program at The Academy of Classical Christian Studies begins with PreK students and builds with each grade. While students are taught the Elements of Art and Principles of Design, our program emphasizes drawing skills, a skill that requires the student be taught how to “look” at the Created world around them and how to translate that world using various media.
The program pulls from history, literature, and scripture at various points in the curriculum. Classical art, a centuries-old method of teaching art, parallels with the Trivium as certain skills follow the development of the child.
The Dialectic student begins to delve deeper as they become more aware of their own abilities while the Rhetoric student has the opportunities to manifest and push their own artistry.
