ELEMENTARY FINE ARTS OFFERINGS
Our K-8 art program introduces all students at their age level to concepts such as principles and elements of design, color theory, drawing & painting basics, history and art criticism. Students learn both by looking at art by others as well as hands-on work of their own, culminating in a school-wide art show at the end of the year. Their experience can be enhanced by participating in the after school art program which offers additional opportunities to create.
In our desire to give students the opportunity to engage in Drama class prior to navigating on to high school, our 7th grade students get the opportunity to be in Drama during the year. This class is taught by a trained drama teacher who has been involved in drama performances for decades and includes instruction in drama, acting and singing.
AFTER SCHOOL FINE ARTS
CHRISTIAN YOUTH THEATER (CYT)
Horizon Christian School partners with CYT, a faith-based drama, acting and singing program. CYT has an amazing reputation for top-level performances in our community. CYT @School gives our students the opportunity to receive high-level training in dramatic arts after school on Tuesdays from 3:00 to 4:30 on our campus. Additionally, students have the choice to join the community-wide CYT program in order to audition for their larger performances.
CYT is open to student ages 7 years old through 8th grade. Our student body goes to the Sherwood Performing Arts Center for a least one play each year because each cast is often made up of many of our own students.
In addition to CYT @School, you can sign up for more in-depth classes in drama, dance, voice and other theater arts with CYT after school classes.
Tuesdays 4:45-6:45pm, at the Sagert Campus
