CCS Fine Arts Programs
Cornerstone Christian Schools believes fine arts help students learn creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.
At CCS, Art students learn the elements of art, the principles of design, the fundamentals of drawing, painting, collage-making, clay sculpting and other visual art mediums. Through their years at CCS, students will learn the creative process from the birth of an idea to the completion of the final product. The curriculum builds on previous instruction by adding new skills. Each skill level has a more complex set of objectives, and prepares the students for future art opportunities. They will also learn about the history of visual art and the role of Christians in the visual arts community. Students will also have the opportunity to compete in art competitions locally and across the state.

Beginning in sixth grade, students have the opportunity to expend their creativity via acting and participating in other aspects of theatre production. CCS hosts multiple theatre productions throughout the school year that are open to the public.
The CCS Music program emphasizes music as a God-given expression of praise and worship. Students learn to appreciate all types of music, as well as how and why music was used in the Bible. Various methods of instruction -- vocal, instrumental, and rhythmic --are used. As the fundamentals of music are taught, students learn the importance of individual and group praise, artistic performance, and excellence in accuracy and quality.
Cornerstone Christian School’s thriving and award-winning fine arts program offers students numerous opportunities to develop their God-given gifts and build a solid artistic foundation through music, performing arts, and visual arts in a Christ-centered environment.
"A well-rounded education involves exposure and opportunities in the areas of fine and performing arts."
God is the author of creativity, and students at CCS are encouraged to utilize their artistic expression as a form of worship and intellectual curiosity to experience a greater appreciation of God’s majestic creation.
