Philosophy of Visual Art Education:  God has created us in His image including the nature and ability to create. We are each a unique creation of God with a specific plan, purpose, and way of seeing the world and communicating visually. The process of observing God's creation and creating can be a way of connecting on a deeper level with the Lord. There is also order and purpose to His design, and we can see, appreciate and emulate these characteristics in our visual design choices. Our culture is increasingly visually based (media, advertising, functional design), and students need to understand how to interpret and use visual media in ways that bring glory to God.
