Arts Education in BCCA strives to encourage and engage our students’ creative minds to nurture their God-given gifts and learn Arts as a means of self-expression, of understanding, and of connecting with various renowned artists and art processes. We are grateful to our Art teachers for sharing their love of the arts with our students.
Here are some of the art projects done by our students in Elementary and High School.
Grade 7 Hand and Map Project – represents the combination of a map and our hands, allowing God to lead and guide us through the “Map of Life”. This project starts with Blind Colour Line drawings of their hands from observations, then transferred drawing of their hands onto clear contact paper and placed over the map, choosing to line it up with key cartographic features like rivers, coastlines, highways, etc. Students then select a symbolic Bible verse to go with the Hand and Map artwork.
Motivation from British Artist Ed Fairburn’s Map series.
High School Art
High School Art Class is studying landscape painting and specifically looking at paintings by the Group of 7 Canadian artists and European impressionist paintings like Monet and Van Gogh. We have been spending time practicing various drawing skills, looking at famous art pieces from history, and also drawing and painting outdoors in the fresh air.
