Visual Arts

A student’s God-given desire to create and appreciate the aesthetic beauty in God’s universe is encouraged and nurtured through CHCA’s Visual Arts programming. Through various processes, our youngest to our oldest of students become aware of how art relates to multiple areas of study, and the world around us. They examine the human experience through their own creativity, through art history, and through the use of visual mediums, technology, literature, and God’s word. We strive to help our students become engaged and insightful participants. Visual Fine Arts at CHCA prepares students to acknowledge their God-given talents and to pursue with confidence opportunities and challenges set before them.

Walk in any CHCA campus building and you will find visual arts telling numerous stories throughout our halls.
