Fine Arts Concentration

The Fine Art program explores the diverse realm of fine art in an interdisciplinary program that combines studio art practice with theory and history. Students pursuing this concentration will receive rigorous one-on-one instruction in the foundation skills of drawing and painting, and will also be given the freedom to create their own personal body of work. The focus is on imagination and discipline, experimentation and critical thinking to engage with the world of fine art from a Reformed Christian perspective.

Mission Statement

The Fine Art program of Providence Christian College exists to enable students to create original works of art and to appreciate and critically examine the history and philosophy of art from a Reformed Christian perspective.

  2. Demonstrate a working knowledge of the history and central theories of Fine Art.

“Liberal arts is a conversation through which we obtain wisdom. True wisdom, then, founded in the fear and love of the Lord, engenders a desire for a deeper knowledge and love of one another, teaches us and aids us in forgiving and reconciling with one another and encourages us to explore together the limitless implications of our redeemed existence on this earth.”
