The Arts are very important at Maranatha and we offer a growing and progressive four-year art program. This program is designed to give the student a thorough exposure to both the production and history of art, and to enhance his or her unique, God-given creativity. Our art classrooms, photo studio/lab, and Mac Lab, as well as our beautiful campus setting, all aid in this endeavor. Topics explored through the program are: drawing methods, perspective, color theory, portrait drawing, oil and acrylic painting, some modern art techniques, basis printing, photography, graphic design, and much more.
Courses offered in this department include: Art Introduction, Painting and Drawing, Honors Painting and Drawing, Advanced Placement Studio Art (with over 90% pass rate on the AP test), Honors Portfolio, Photography I and II, Advanced Placement Photo, Graphic Design I and II, and Yearbook.
