At River City Believers Academy, we cultivate the innate creativity ingrained in every student. As people created in the image of a creative God, students are grounded in a classical, core curriculum, enriched with study of the history of the visual arts and the important role they played in the development of civilization and Western thought. Beginning with Kindergarten through twelfth grade, students will be taught our Christian worldview while learning about and interacting with art from prehistoric to modern times.
Under the direction of Mrs. Julie Ebarb, our Fine Arts Director, students will be involved with a wide variety of art mediums as they study art history. Art students will improve their skills in drawing, painting, sculpting, multimedia pieces, and will learn the basics of design. As they recognize that God's hand has been and will continue to be in every piece of creative work, they will be exposed to today's creative workplace and it's variety of expression. Upper level art students will work with silk screening, graphic design, photography and be exposed to the many opportunities for artistic expression in the work place.
RCBA participates in many art competitions and gallery presentations. In preparation for these opportunities, students learn an appreciation for art, how to appropriately critic art, and how to prepare for art competitions. We are so proud of the many awards our students have earned and received.
