Visual and performing arts are an integral part of the VCS experience for
our elementary students. We feel that the core curriculum is augmented
in our fine arts programs, allowing them the opportunity to celebrate
the talents and gifts our Lord has given them through drawing, painting,
singing, playing a musical instrument, or participating in on-stage performances
such as our special Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and grade-level musicals.
All of our elementary students participate in a weekly general music class,
giving them a basic foundation of music theory and history, and exposing
them to various instruments. In third grade students can join our elementary
Honor Choir, and in fourth they can choose to enter the band or strings
programs. Both of those groups perform concerts during the year, allowing
our students to develop their stage presence.
Elementary students also have a weekly exposure to visual arts, where they
study the masters and emulate their style and creativity!
