We aim at putting the children in touch with the great artists’ minds of all ages. We try to unlock … the wonderful garden of Art. We want to open their eyes and minds to appreciate beauty and to lead them from mere fondness for a pretty picture which pleases the senses up to honest love and discriminating admiration for what is truly beautiful–a love and admiration which are the response of heart and intellect to the appeal addressed to them through the senses by all great works of art.

The art program at Calvary Schools of Holland is multi-faceted. All elementary and middle school students sketch, draw and paint throughout the day as part of our curriculum. Students develop a relationship with artists, their work and their medium and style. In dedicated art classes, students also work in groups and one-on-one with faculty to develop skill in a wide range of techniques.
