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.
How things seemingly have changed for this college; may it stand firm and true for Oak Grove now and always. “Every student shall consider the main end of his study to wit to know God in Jesus Christ and answerably to lead a Godly, sober life. — Founders of Yale
