Christ the King School’s performing arts program consists of band, choir, and a musical production. Through performance, students develop their artistic, expressive, presentation, and group/social skills. Being part of a larger community offers opportunities for students to collaborate with like-minded students on large-scale endeavors. Our performance arts program has a reputation of excellence and rigor.
Band and choir (fifth through eighth grade) rehearse during the school day and have multiple performances throughout the year, during the school day and after, on- and off-site.
Each spring, CKS middle school students produce a musical. Any student in middle school may audition. The musical highlights many layers of performance and art through acting, singing, dancing, design, and creative technologies.
“Art means revealing God in everything that exists.” - Hermann Hesse
In Art we start out by helping students become aware that all of their talents are a gift from God, and that using these talents is a way of praising Him. The students in both Primary and Intermediate art classes are introduced to the Elements of Art in a simple context to start the building process. Through the use of many different mediums, viewing works by famous artists, and displaying their own work, a sense of the value of art is instilled. Gradually we progress and build upon the Elements and start to incorporate the principles of design. Students are challenged to build upon their creativity through improvement in craftsmanship, knowledge of art in an art historical context, and use of different mediums. At the Middle School level, students continue to build upon their skills by incorporating all of the Elements and Principles of Design. Craftsmanship continues to improve and multiple mediums are used. Art historical connections are made and famous artists are referenced. Art’s ability to make a statement is studied and practiced. The student’s artwork is displayed throughout the community through contests, fundraisers, and shows. Visits to galleries and museums are incorporated into our arts curriculum in order to instill an appreciation for the arts in our world.
