We believe that students and parents alike will see greater value in engaging with art on a daily basis, whether it is learning to play an instrument, exploring an interest in dance or the visual arts.
Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
One of the core values taught at The Covenant School emphasizes embracing a student’s creativity through various forms of art. With every enrollment year The Covenant School continues to make improvements and additions to the variety of unique learning experiences offered by their Fine Arts Enrichment Academy (FAEA). Recently, the Christian elementary school announced an expansion to their art appreciation program including new classes and special guest performances from local artists and institutions.
The focal point of expanding the FAEA was to offer children a wider range of class options available to them. “Our aim is to introduce students to as many forms of art as possible,” stated Director of the Fine Arts Academy, Mary Maples. “We believe that students and parents alike will see greater value in engaging with art on a daily basis, whether it is learning to play an instrument, exploring an interest in dance or the visual arts.”
Maples highlighted several portions of the program that would see improvements. The Covenant School fine arts program already incorporates individual instruction on various musical instruments such as the piano and guitar, with opportunities to participate in group performances. Among the new classes offered will be individual instruction for students interested in the organ and an art class. Several members of the Nashville art community have also generously volunteered their time, allowing children to experience the arts close-up, in an exceptional educational setting.
“We are lucky to be located in an area with such a strong and supportive artistic culture and community,” added Maples. “We have always benefited from a great relationship with the Nashville artistic community. The Nashville Ballet, Belmont Repertory Theater and the Country Music Hall of Fame are only a few of the great organizations that will be spending time with our students.”
Parents and other members of the Nashville community will have a chance to experience the fruits of The Covenant School’s fine arts program April 30, during the Fine Arts Enrichment Academy recital. Throughout the months of April and May the school’s choir will also be performing at Nashville area retirement homes.
