The fine arts department at HPCA is blessed to have a broad range of artistic offerings for its students, all led by caring and qualified teachers. In the elementary program students work in the areas of art and music during the school day. At this level of instruction young artists learn the basics of each discipline and of performing music. Students also have the opportunity to show their artwork throughout the year and perform in two large musicals. Individual lessons are available from several different teachers on piano.
CREATE Festival (Christ Revealed by Experiencing Art Through Exploration)
We continue a long tradition of a cultural arts day for students in grades TK-6. Artisans from the community share their craft with our students.
In the middle school students in the sixth grade participate in a wheel program. This innovative class gives each student an experience in the areas of art, band, and choir. When the students enter the seventh grade they are well informed as to which area they would like to participate. With more knowledge and performing skill, these students have more opportunities to show their work and perform throughout the year at concerts, festivals and shows.
High school students who participate in fine arts classes may work in the areas of visual art, photography, band, choir, and drama. As students go through their high school career they will be increasingly challenged with a broader and deeper understanding of their individual discipline. A wide variety of opportunities are available for students including community and school art shows, music festivals, competitions, concerts, community performances, play productions, and ministry opportunities in all areas. Upon graduation, those individuals who wish to continue their studies in college will be well prepared to do so.
