It is our belief that God is the ultimate Creator and that since we are created in His image, each student is hardwired to be creative. Through the avenue of art, it is our hope that students will grasp how awesome our Creator is and gain insight into strengths and talents they possess! Jackson Christian art students are exposed to various media in order to broaden their view of art and develop their artistic skills. In Art 1, students are introduced to drawing, painting, ceramics, mixed media, and sculpture! Art 2 builds on those skills and Art 3 is solely studio time in which students develop their own artistic style and create a portfolio.
Art students compete for the opportunity to have their art displayed in the Annual West Tennessee Regional Student Art Exhibition at the West Tennessee Regional Art Center in Humboldt, TN. Each year we have participated, we have had student art chosen from over 400 entries, with only 150 total works being selected to be on display!
