At Hanford Christian School, art is taught from preschool to Junior High. Art is taught daily for preschool students, twice a week for elementary students and once a week for junior high students. Art sessions are 40 minutes per week. The program is designed to encourage positive solutions through the creative process. Students are exposed to a wide variety of tools and media as they create. All students submit work to the Kings County Fair yearly. Twenty-five pieces of framed art work are also submitted to the Young Masters show at the Kings Art Center in April. Junior high students also participate in a Fine Arts Program in May. The art room allows for free exploration and creative expression, as well as instruction in art concepts, terms, and techniques. Students are introduced to the various styles, and masterpieces of famous artists. Students are encouraged to create artwork that glorifies our creator with this verse, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
Music has been used throughout history to bring praises to our God. David was an accomplished musician and many of the Psalms were written for the director of music. Hanford Christian School loves to worship the Lord through both vocal and instrumental music. Beginning band starts in fifth grade and then progresses on through junior high. Choir is available to all junior high students. Both band and choir make public appearances and individuals are encouraged to share their musical talents at a Fine Arts Festival held once a year in competition with several other schools.
