Arts

Elementary

Arts at Sumiton Christian encompasses music, drama and fine arts. For music appreciation, elementary students are taught a varied and well-balanced music curriculum, including music notation and terminology, music history, and instrumental families following Alabama Course of Study and National Standards. They also learn to play recorders and various percussion instruments to help them understand the dynamics of reading and playing music up through 5th grade. Elementary age students are also encouraged to participate in various performances and productions throughout the year to help gain confidence. We have a concert at the end of each semester as well as a Veteran's Day program and Grandparent's Day program. The 4th and 5th grade students also attend the AISA State Choral Festival held in April each year.

Lastly, Sumiton Christian offers a wonderful fine arts program taught by certified teachers. Weekly art classes are available for student through 5th grade and offered as an elective for students in the 6th-12th grades. Students are taught a variety of media from classic drawing, clay, bead weaving, repurposed art and sculpture. Student's artwork is featured in the annual SCS Elementary Art Show. Students who place in the art show can go on to compete regionally, at the state level and beyond. The art department along with students also likes to complete beautification projects around the campus as well. Private fine art lessons available upon request and on a first come first serve basis. Students and their parents can determine the curriculum for the lessons. Adult art classes are also available at the school on Tuesday nights from 5pm - 8pm. Contact Mrs. Sloan at the school for more information about lessons, fees and availability.
