The Regent art curriculum is founded on the Biblical belief that every child is made in the image of God. Creativity is, therefore, one of the wonderful blessings given to each person. Our goal is to inspire, train and nurture each child to discover and develop their unique gifts and talents and to dedicate these to honor and serve God. (Col. 1:28)
The curriculum points to the Creator and the beauty of the earth (Phil. 4:8). We do not want to conform to the world but be transformed, lifting up what is good and acceptable (Rom. 12:2).
A Biblical worldview is integrated in the lessons as we seek God's perspective of the world through studying the lives and works of famous artists. This also expands a student's understanding of the classroom history lessons since art is a reflection and expression of culture. The students learn the elements and fundamentals of art while imitating styles and creating reproductions of well-known artworks. Creativity is cultivated through exploration and interpretation while the student's unique artistic style is nurtured through discovery and self-expression.
