Students at Cornerstone are exposed to the vast and exciting world of art through our art program. The art courses are designed to show God as the artful, ultimate Creator that He is. Students are taught about His works and encouraged to reflect on His wonderful creations, and thus be inspired to create wonderful artworks themselves.
Included in the art curriculum are various creative and challenging projects which teach student the formal elements (line, shape, form, texture, value and color) and principles (emphasis, balance, harmony variety, movement, rhythm, proportion, and unity) of art. With each project, students are exposed to biblical correlations, art history, art criticism and a wide selection of art mediums. In the art program, students also learn how art is relevant in their lives, how they can honor God through their creativity and how art can be used in other areas of their academic lives.

"The most important thing about CCA is that it helps me learn. It has wonderful teachers from Mrs. Ostrowski to Mrs. Davis. Every day we have math. Sometimes it is as hard as trying to break a pencil and sometimes it is as easy as stepping on the floor. On Thursday, we go to chapel and sing praises to God and we sound louder than the Liberty Bell. But the most important thing about CCA is that it helps me learn."
