Philosophy of the Fine Arts Department


The Fine Arts Department at Sioux Falls Christian Schools believes that fine arts are essential in a well-rounded education. The Fine Arts Department provides the students with the opportunity to explore art, music, and drama. It provides the individual with a sense of confidence through their accomplishments in this field. The students are challenged to acknowledge the responsibility to use their talents and knowledge in the service of God and others, and to live Christian values in their daily lives.
