The Fine Arts Department of Shiloh Hills Christian School is a very active one!
Drama is an exciting part of the program, for it is here that students are challenged to express themselves through characters in plays, by preparing speeches for competitions,
and even writing some of their own skits and plays. Drama students usually secure the main parts in the Christmas Musical.
MS & HS Music
Music at Shiloh is both instructional and ministerial. We offer choir, small vocal ensembles, , handchimes, handbells, instrumental ensembles, opportunities to minister in Chapel and perform in two major concerts each year. Musical students prepare themselves in their specific disciplines for the fine arts competition each year.
At Shiloh we believe that our music should glorify God, exalt His Name, and edify His children. We dedicate ourselves to a standard of excellence and strive to maintain it.
Col. 3:17 “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.”
Psalm 150:3-6 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
The Elementary Music Department of Shiloh Hills Christian School begins to develop musicianship in the K3 class and continues through the fifth grade. Children learn the basic elements of music (performance skills, reading/notating music, improvisation, composition, analyzation, and investigation of cultural/historical context), based on the Georgia Performance Standards for fine arts. Students in all levels will be singing and playing classroom instruments including bookwhackers, rhythm sticks, hand drums, table bells, and many others. We begin playing recorder during the second semester of 4th grade and continue through 5th grade. Famous Christian hymn writers are studied as well as the history of hymns. Students are introduced to the style periods of music through listening and composer biographies. Opportunities are provided for participation in two programs in the fall semester and the ACSI choral festival in the spring semester. Private lessons are offered on a variety of instruments after school. Our goal is to develop a standard of excellence in whatever we are doing in order to praise our LORD!
Shiloh Hills Christian School offers classes in Visual Art for the PK4 class through 12th grade. Classes for pre-k and elementary students focus on the principles and elements of art while concentrating on strengthening God-given talents and skills. The middle school student will build on their foundation to include an appreciation for beauty and design. High school students build even more on their foundation by developing problem solving skills and using critical thinking to create meaningful works with a message. All students will learn about the history of art and how it applies to our world today. They will create using a variety of media, including paints, pencils, chalk pastels, oil pastels, markers, inks, clay, wire, plaster, papers, and found materials. They will have the opportunity to create paintings, drawings, printmaking, mixed media, sculpture, book art, and crafts. Students in grades 4-12 also have the opportunity to participate in fine arts competition. High school students who win on the state level may also participate in national competition. Because we are created in the image of God and He has created all things, each of us should be inspired to create in whatever disciplines that might be. For the visual art student, there is much opportunity to create works that simply glorify God. This is the aim of the art department at Shiloh Hills Christian School.
