“Musical education is soul-craft: carried out properly it tunes the soul, and makes one receptive to truth and goodness.” - Clark & Jain, The Liberal Arts Tradition

Creativity

If there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.  (Phil. 4:8)

 

When it comes to food, we have all heard it before: what you eat and drink (i.e. what you put into your body) will effect your overall wellbeing in some way.  A lesser acknowledged truth is that what you put into your mind and that which you perceive through your senses is of equal value.

 

At Holy Trinity Classical Christian School, we believe in filling our students with a steady diet of the good, the true, and the beautiful, and Fine Arts embodies the beautiful portion of this feast.

 

By taking in great music and art, our students are nourished by sights and sounds that have the power to strengthen and cultivate their senses rather than overwhelm them.

 

Ultimately, our hope is that, by filling our students with good things to see and to hear, they will find themselves more able to recognize beauty in the world around them and so create it for themselves.   

 

For more information on how Holy Trinity Classical Christian School students embrace the fine arts, please see our art, music, theater, and Heritage Hall Dance Society pages.
