As an entry-level elective, this course provides a strong foundation for exploration of a variety of art-making methods, materials, and processes in the visual arts. Knowledge of drawing & painting, photography & graphic design, and sculpture & design is gained through class discussions and art- making challenges. Understanding the elements of art and principles of design allows students to create and discuss art, both in class discussions and examination art in history and/or museums. An essential component of the Visual Arts program centers on an understanding of God as the Master Creator and how that understanding informs choices in art-making and judging works of art. Weekly visual journals allow students to explore their own personal voice in art.

I value partnering with other believers in serving God, fulfilling his calling, and fellowshipping with other like-minded people. I am energized seeing everyone at ECS and myself do our best for the Lord."
