You will be able to admire the artwork of our fall and spring artists and applaud various secondary musical acts as they perform throughout the evening. This night will showcase our expanding Fine Arts program.
One of our guiding principals is to love and glorify God in all we do. Our Fine Art teachers guide students to learn to use the gifts and talents God has given them to glorify Him.
Another one of our guiding principals is to educate with excellence. As you see the various art projects and hear our secondary musical groups perform, you will see how this principal is being taught each day here.
You will be treated to songs from our A Cappella group, Choral/Ensemble groups, and the junior/senior drama group. You will see a short preview from the upcoming high school musical drama, Seussical.
THE FUTURE OF OUR FINE ARTS PROGRAM
At the State of the School evening in February, Mrs. Borders shared Vision 2020, Cornerstone’s strategic plan. One of our goals is to develop a comprehensive Fine Arts Program of Visual and Performing Arts. Alison Luke, dean of student life, has been named the interim fine arts director to lead this effort.
Mrs. Luke shared the first steps in developing our Fine Arts program:
- Revamp and add new course offerings
- Rename and add new course descriptions
- Move toward more community involvement through the arts
- Move from Interim to Permanent Fine Arts Director/Dept. Chair
Fine Art courses begin for our students in the elementary school where they learn basic skills that will broaden their experiences rather than only being performance based.
Our middle school courses become more exploratory and general in nature as students begin to discover and fine tune their passion for the Arts.
And finally, our high school courses are designed for students who wish to pursue a more particular area of study.
“Ultimately, we take great pride and joy that within our Fine Arts Department, we don't simply read or learn about our subjects; we dance, sing, play, act, paint, and sculpt. And, we look forward to sharing our work with our families and our community,” said Mrs. Luke.
