What is ArtBeat?

ArtBeat is an annual campus-wide celebration of the visual and performing arts at CHCA. Since 1999, this event has served to highlight the God-given talents of each student and bring glory to God through the arts (and have fun doing it!). More than 2,300 people attend this one-day festival, which features performances by students from all four campuses on three different stages, 1,000 pieces of student artwork on display, a juried art competition for high schoolers, hands-on arts and crafts for attendees of all ages, professional and student artists providing demonstrations of their work, and delicious food and drink.

With help from CHCA’s outstanding fine arts faculty and staff, ArtBeat is organized by a committee of parents who work months in advance to choose a theme, invite professional artists, create accessible and fun hands-on activities, hold 15 hours of student auditions and line up the 300+ volunteers that are necessary for this event. ArtBeat is sponsored by the Friends of Fine Arts (FOFA)
