Visual Arts


Wheaton Christian Grammar School's visual arts teachers utilize dedicated classroom spaces with ample art equipment, abundant natural light, a kiln and pottery wheel, and a digital arts studio to engage students with a variety of media.   Our students produce approximately 5,000 pieces of art each year, many of which are displayed in our campus corridors on a rotating basis throughout the school year.  Representative work is entered in the annual ACSI Regional Arts Festival where our students' art is displayed among 600 exemplary creations from 15 ACSI schools in our region.
