We believe human creativity is a reflection of the creative God who made us. We strive to foster an environment of artistic possibility that inspires students to pursue excellence while encouraging them to use their gifts for God’s glory.
Linfield’s Fine Arts Department develops a community of selfmotivated artists, musicians, singers, actors, filmmakers, and ASL performers who pursue their creativity with passion and boldness.
Through a broad range of experiences, students gain confidence, leadership skills, and an appreciation of the arts that they will carry with them through college and beyond.
The mission of the Linfield Christian School Fine Arts Department is to bring each student to the realization that we are all created in the image of a creative God who is pleased and honored when we use our gifts well; to that end, providing instruction and application for personal expression and a lifetime of artistic enrichment.
-Elementary School Fine Arts
The Elementary School Fine Arts program showcases a vast array of curriculum including musical theatre, worship team, honor choir, band, and art appreciation. All students have an opportunity to perform at the Christmas and Spring musicals. Performances include dramatic roles, new songs, choreography, and many American Sign Language movements. The worship team leads praise songs during chapels and is open to fourth and fifth grade students. Also open to this age group is honor choir who will perform for adjudicators during the ACSI Choral Festival.
Students in Middle School Band will form the foundation for Concert, Marching, Pep and Jazz Bands. Weekly semi-private instrumental lessons and full-band rehearsals are offered to all who desire to learn. Instructions will be available for wind instruments, including flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, and trombone. Students who play string instruments such as piano, bass, guitar, or drums may be considered by audition only. Two seasonal performances are planned each year.
The Drama program introduces middle school students to theatre. Through monologues, improvisation and scene work the students will begin to explore the world of theater.
Another creative class designed for Middle School students is Art. This class studies art elements such as line, texture, shape, color, value and composition through painting. Students learn basic strategies to explore familiar objects and places in today’s culture.
The Fine Arts Academy is a school within a school offering a graduation track with coursework that emphasizes artistic development in addition to meeting the basic academic requirements for UC acceptance. Forty fine arts units are the minimum graduation requirement for LCFAA students but special academy courses and scheduling considerations can make it possible for arts students to take up to 70 fine art units while remaining on track for graduation with a college prep diploma. All Linfield honors and AP courses are also available to academy students. For fine art students interested in taking their arts education to the university level, special career guidance, portfolio preparation, and audition preparation is available. The LCFAA diploma speaks to the well-rounded nature of a student and is a valuable part of a college resume, even if the student is not planning to pursue fine art at the post-secondary level.
