Visual art at First Baptist Academy focuses on a comprehensive program of teaching students the elements and principles of design as well as incorporating the Sunshine State Standards of visual arts from PK -12th grades. The concepts are introduced in the early elementary years, built upon in elementary grades, and progress to utilizing these concepts through self expression and critiquing in the middle and high school grades. All visual art classes incorporate art history, critical thinking skills and a biblical worldview. Instruction is centered on the fact that God is the ultimate artist and creator (Colossians 1:16). Students participate in many local art shows and contests to highlight their work. High school students are also encouraged to discover careers in the arts through field trips and discussions.
