Student Creativity on Display

All art instruction is carefully presented within the guidelines of Discipline Based Art Education philosophies, which are based on including art history, trying traditional art processes and techniques, and emphasizing originality in student work. DBAE is widely recognized as a way to study the discipline of creating art while providing a structure that most kids find natural and encouraging.

All of our art classes at Immanuel achieve and surpass the State of Michigan Benchmark Standards in Art Education. We cover the elements and principals of art in every grade. We experience drawing with professional graphite pencils, charcoal and color pencils. Oil pastel and chalk pastel will be covered in the school year. Students will work on sculptural projects, which includes working in clay.

All of this is done while studying a certain genre of art, culture, or a specific artist. Often it is a specific technique of art-making. Students are encouraged to think analytically.  While looking at Van Gogh's Starry Night , they are presented with questions like, "What do you see here?" and "What is it that makes you say that?"  Questions like these encourage exploration and confidence. They reinforce the importance of thought and observation, all skills that can be used in any area of life.

Please browse through this page to see examples of student work, art shows, and much more!  We appreciate that you are taking the time to look into the depth and breath of your student's creativity.

Our art program at Immanuel Lutheran is a true point of pride.

Student Art in Weekend Services

Immanuel students used art to illustrate "Out of Silence Hope Is Born" for our Christmas Eve services. For 400 years God was silent towards His people then out of the Silence He spoke His Word made flesh…Jesus, who is, gives and speaks to you over and over again Hope, Life and Love.

These four paintings were created by four students from Immanuel Lutheran School. Each student said a word into a sound wave application on a cell phone. The image that was created, those wavy lines, were printed out and used as a stencil on this artwork. Each student tried to use the colors and composition that would reflect each of their words, which are God’s spoken Words to us in Jesus.

Combining technology, science and creativity are a keystone of the Art Department of Immanuel Lutheran School.
