Visual Arts

In the beginning, God CREATED the heavens and the earth.  Genesis 1:1

The Visual Arts program at Crean Lutheran High School provides a healthy environment for students to cultivate creativity and see Christ in the world around them. Students develop a lifelong appreciation for the arts through the courses: Exploratory Art, Honors Exploratory Art, Drawing and Painting, Sculpture I & II, Photography I & II, Graphic Design I, Advanced Art, and AP Art.

Each course incorporates a Christian worldview and focuses on the idea that we create because we are created in the image of God. Through the visual art program, students will leave with the understanding of the creative process, historical context, visual communication, and applications that connect to real life experiences.

The Visual Arts and AP Spring Showcase - SOJOURNER

Sojourner, a person who resides temporarily in a place

Throughout this online art exhibition, you may notice how the world of art opens the opportunities for students to navigate through their thoughts visually. As many students depict the struggles of this life, we are urged to set our course as sojourners towards the eternal perspective. Understanding that we are living in a temporary state, we are encouraged by the grace of Jesus Christ and can have hope in Him, for the life that is to come.
This year we were saddened that we were not able to be together due to COVID-19 and celebrate our artists in our beautiful art gallery. However, we are thankful for technology and the opportunity to still honor our students and program through this website. These students have taken problem solving in the visual arts to a whole new level. By using materials from home, crayons, paper, environmental materials, and more, they have created work that reflects not only themselves but the transition into shelter in place.
