Fine Arts History & Theory Courses

A rich understanding and appreciation of the arts is necessary for a student’s knowledge of their Christian heritage, since the arts have served as a primary way of worshipping Christ throughout church history. Dominion Academy offers several specific courses that help students orient themselves within the arts and and position them to reclaim art in service to the Kingdom of God.

  • History of Western Art (Humanities) – The history of western art covers the elements of art and design. Students are taught to apply them in “reading” art of specific periods in Western History.
  • Shakespeare Theater – the director teaches fundamentals of classic, Elizabethan theater and English poetry. Student assignments include writing theater reviews and character studies. Theater students have an opportunity to travel to the Stratford Festival each fall, where they experience world renowned theater performances on several Stratford stages, even rubbing shoulders with professional actors and actresses in theater workshops held between performances.
