Arts at EHCS

Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.

Isaiah 64:8

God is an artist, and humanity is made in His image. At East Hill Christian School, we cultivate the innate creativity granted to us as image bearers of a creative God. We believe that art both glorifies God and serves and shapes culture. The arts have played a significant role in the history of the faith: communicating doctrine, celebrating God’s goodness, expressing the Christian life, and basking in the beauty of God’s creative work in the world.

Andy Crouch writes that we are both artists and gardeners. Where the gardener “tends to what has gone before…The artist can be more daring: she starts with a blank canvas or a solid piece of stone and gradually brings something out of it that was never there before. They are acting in the image of the One who spoke a world into being and stooped down to form creatures from the dust. They are creaturely creators, tending and shaping the world that original Creator made.”

Therefore, we seek to provide opportunities for students to discover the intersection of theology and art.
