Fine Art

The curriculum at Grace Lutheran School (GLS) provides classes in art for kindergarten through 5th grade, and in 6th-8th grade as an elective. The art classes provide the opportunity to use a variety of mediums in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional projects. The masters, modern artists, and current illustrators are introduced at every grade level.

Grace Lutheran promotes personal creativity by giving students the opportunity to explore famous art, artists, and cultures from around the world. In addition to studying art history and technique, students develop their own artistic abilities with painting, drawing, printmaking, clay modeling, ceramics, drama, and more.

Advanced Art Class Elective (6th-8th grade)

  • Participate in the Fall and Spring Festival of the Arts
  • Entries into student art shows
  • Stagecraft and prop designs for the school play
  • Meet every day to work on detailed projects and extra time to improve their skills

Seven Reasons Why Integrating Art is Important

  1. Working in the arts helps learners to develop creative problem-solving skills.
  2. Teaching through the arts can present difficult concepts visually, making them more easy to understand.
  3. Art instruction helps children with the development of motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, and inventiveness.
  4. Visual arts teach learners about color, layout, perspective, and balance - all techniques that are necessary in presentations (visual, digital) of academic work.
  5. Integrating art with other disciplines reaches students who might not otherwise be engaged in classwork.
  6. Arts experiences boost critical thinking, teaching students to take the time to be more careful and thorough in how they observe the world.
  7. A study of Missouri public schools in 2010 found that greater arts education led to fewer disciplinary infractions and higher attendance, graduation rates, and test scores.
