Visual and Performing Arts
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!
