Why Have Fine Arts Programs?

God has blessed Faith Christian School with an administration that places a high value on the arts. We’ve invested heavily in our performing and visual art programs, but why? Are not these “extras” just expensive things that are nice to have, but not essential? (Spoiler:  they’re critical)

Research has indicated that students who are involved in the arts perform better in core academic subjects. That’s “all well and good”, but does scripture have anything to say about investing in the arts? After reading this article, I was more convinced than ever that being involved in creative is an essential part of the Christian walk.
