Arts at EC
Our selection of literature, music, visual art, materials and resources for performance and for classroom instruction in the fine arts will be guided by our Reformed world-and-life view on our calling to provide excellence in academics as a divine calling. In everything we do, we will “work at it with all our heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” (Col. 3:23). Since we believe that all truth is God’s truth, we will make selections for classroom instruction and for public performances based on each selection’s merits as imparting some measure of God’s truth.
While we are mandated with nurturing our student’s faith, we are also mandated to help our students use their minds as well, confronting apparent conflicts between faith and intellect with academic integrity and a desire to find God’s truth. Our goal is to provide the resources to enable our students to stretch their God-given intellects and to teach them the importance of discernment.
