Our goal is to kindle a passion and an appreciation for art in each student. Art is so exciting! It is the perfect medium to express our creativity. In Genesis we learn that God is the Ultimate Creator and we have been made in His image; therefore, we are creative by design. At ECS, we want to develop a spirit of creativity within each student. We try new things together and use our experiences and interests to create beautiful works of art. We use various media including watercolor, tempera, acrylics, textiles, clay, and much more.

It is delightful to see what these little hands create each time they come to Art!


God made music for us to enjoy. The goal in music class at ECS is to provide a joyful atmosphere that motivates every child to appreciate, create, and learn music with the purpose of sharing it for the glory of God at school, at home, and anywhere the Lord opens doors. We pray that this program will help our students to discover, develop, and devote their talents to the Lord through our Christ-centered, Biblically-directed curricula, and that the children will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ while developing the vision and practice of excellence in music.

Each class incorporates music concepts, music notation, instruments of the orchestra and classroom, composers, American heritage, fun songs, sacred songs, classical listening, hymns, rounds, and drama.
