At Oak Grove, we desire to develop in our students an appreciation and understanding of art, both in its forms and it’s role in history and western civilization. Students at OGCA acquire the grammar and language of art through learning the basic foundations of artistic expression, such as line, texture, and composition. We seek to introduce our students to the master artists throughout history, while prioritizing age-appropriateness and context. We desire to teach our students to evaluate and understand art and artists through a Christ-centered worldview. In so doing, we hope to inspire creativity, a respect for the traditions and history of art, and ultimately, a love of artistic expression that honors and glorifies God.

Socrates sought to guide his student into authentic knowledge. He engaged his student in deep dialogue ‘forcing’ the student to think their way to a sound conclusion. He wanted to teach his students to think. The goal of thinking is truth. With this method, knowledge is supported by understanding and the student goes beneath the surface to penetrate the truth of the matter. — R.C. Sproul
