Art - Elementary, Middle School and High School
Here at ELCA your student will build on basic level art classes that include the elements and principles of design, and then have the opportunity to move into more advanced classes including advanced drawing and painting, ceramics, and art history. They also have the opportunity to visit the High Museum of Art to take advantage of this world class collection including the Louvre-Atlanta exhibit. Many other educational field trips are included during the school year. ELCA not only has classes for the advanced art student but also will provide classes for the merit student in order to give them a sense of accomplishment in using the talents God has given them in order to feel successful in an atmosphere of positive reinforcement.
The middle school students at ELCA are eligible to be a part of the National Junior Art Honor Society. This program was specifically. designed to help generate. interest in art programs to inspire, encourage, and recognize the younger art student. When a student completes their junior membership they are encouraged to begin anew with a membership in the National Art Honor Society, for the purpose of inspiring and recognizing those students who have shown an outstanding ability in art. The NAHS strives to aid members in working toward the attainment of the highest standards in art areas, and to bring art education to the attention of the school and community. For students to achieve high standards art programs must maintain a substantive focus by choosing art content that includes complex problem solving and higher order thinking skills, and serious alignment of curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development that results in student learning. Participation in these programs is a mark of accomplishment in the school and community and is well recognized by institutions when your students apply for entry into colleges or universities.
