Visual arts are woven into the fabric of a student’s educational experience at ZCA from a very young age. Art is a fundamental outlet for creative expression and can be incorporated into many components of a child’s education.
At the lower campus, all students in grades PreK3 through grade 5 take part in weekly art instruction, with a special art room designated for these activities. Elementary art classes include instruction in drawing, ceramics, painting and sculpting, as well as the exploration of various other artistic mediums.
At the upper school, our middle school and high school students are exposed to a wide variety of course offerings that include painting, drawing, sculpting, ceramics, textiles and basic graphic design. Our visual arts curriculum includes the development of creative inspiration and critical thinking, the mastery of artistic methods and techniques and a working knowledge of art theory and history.
Zion hosts an annual Spring Art Show in which students can enter their own artwork of any medium. Additionally, our elementary and upper school art instructors contribute students' creations to the annual Maury County Student Art exhibitions at Columbia State Community College each spring.
