The Arts program at Annapolis Area Christian School offers programs in Choral Music, Instrumental Music, General Music, Theatre Arts, and Visual Arts. Our programs are designed to nurture student-artists from kindergarten to graduation and beyond. Developing artistic thought and skill is a lifelong process that reflects the creative nature of our God.
Our art reflects His beauty, and its chief goal is to bring Him glory. We challenge our student-artists to articulate effectively through various artistic media and practice their skill to engage culture and redeem it for Christ and His kingdom.
Artistic gifts are given by God to reveal His glory and to serve the community. At AACS we achieve this through collaboration between art forms, campuses, and academic disciplines. Our arts groups routinely visit local nursing homes, conduct workshops for local elementary schools, and participate in other service projects in the Annapolis community and beyond. Many Upper School arts students choose to study problems in our world related to the arts for their Senior Practicum, and they conduct service projects related to their research.
Within our Christian lower school, students engage in general music classes. Students are able to join formal instrumental instruction in Grade 5. Band is offered in our Christian middle school in Grades 6-8. Within our Christian upper school, we offer five instrumental and vocal ensembles where students practice their instruments and hone in on their performance skills.
Our Christian middle and upper schools take part in the theater arts program. In Grades 7 and 8, students can take part in a drama elective and be involved in annual middle school productions. In the upper school, students engage in chapel services, assemblies, and other special events.
Starting with our Christian kindergarten program, students are offered visual arts classes. Kindergarten through Grade 5 study art year-round whereas our middle school studies three times per week for one semester. Our upper school is offered a variety of courses including 2 and 3D design, drawing, painting, and more.
