Creative and Performing Arts at Calvin

 

Calvin recognizes the place of the arts in the development of the whole child as a Biblical mandate. God is the Creator.  We are His image bearers called to reflect His beauty, grace and love.  Through music, drama and the visual arts, Calvin is committed to fully developing the creative gifts of God's children in order to glorify him through unique avenues of self-expression and praise which affirm and celebrate each child.

We see the Fine Arts as a reflection of the creative beauty of our God. 

Elementary

Beginning in kindergarten through 5th grade, all students attend music class twice a week.  In addition to learning music theory and information about types of music and famous composers, students learn songs for two major performances.  The students, under the direction of our experienced music teacher, Emily Lund, share their musical talents at the Christmas and Spring Concerts.
 

Junior High and High School

In addition to a wide variety of arts opportunities in the curriculum, Calvin offers several options in the co-curricular program as well. These programs present another avenue to develop the skills, discipline and character that are consistent with a Biblical world and life view.
