About us


We are Christian. We unashamedly commit to the authority, and the inspiration of the Scriptures. Every subject is taught in light of the gospel message of Jesus Christ. We will integrate these truths into every aspect of life.


We are family. We know true learning happens in the context of genuine relationships. From administration to faculty to students to parents, we are a family.


We are learners. We prepare students for an ever-changing world by cultivating reflection, reasoning, debate, and idea creation.


We are academic. We celebrate curricular experiences that provide depth and breadth of learning. We believe academic rigor fosters the discipline and accountability needed to prepare our students for life beyond BCS.

Visual Arts at Bethesda Christian School are offered for all students in grades K-12. The program encourages elementary students to use their medium of art as a form of worship for our Lord. We believe that the arts were created by God for our enjoyment, to praise and glorify Him, and reflect His beauty.

Elementary Fine Arts:

The Elementary Visual Arts program introduces the building blocks of art and design. Students will start to recognize elements and principles within art compositions. The art compositions presented in class will come from a variety of cultures and artists. Each project is centered in a Biblical application with a discussion on any “World View” influence. Students will produce projects in pencil, color pencil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, paper sculpture, mixed media and clay. Each year students can create an “Art To Remember” keepsake that can be reproduced on a catalog item. Our school has annual Art Show that highlights our students artistic express and celebrate how God has gifted our little artist.

Junior High and High School Fine Arts:

The Middle School and High School Visual Arts program utilizes the student’s knowledge of elements and principles by critiquing art compositions. Students will engage in an artistic vocabulary about the merits of a variety of artwork. The critique process will increase their ability to judge their own work. The artwork presented will come from a variety of artists, styles and mediums. Projects are selected to encourage a Biblical world view. Students will produce projects in pencil, color pencil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, paper sculpture, wire, mixed media and clay.
