The Arts Academy

Helping kids grow through the ARTS word

The Arts Academy at First Christian Church serves to develop the next generation of artists – trained with excellence for the task of ministry. It also serves as an avenue for growing disciples of Jesus Christ and expressing his love for children in our community.


This September, our fourth year of Arts Academy will kick off with Thursday night classes beginning September 22, 2016 at 5:30pm. (Note that private piano and voice lessons are currently full.)

This year, we are excited for the addition of a Fiber Arts class taught by Andrea Grunden. Introduction to Fiber Arts will teach basic skills in the areas of knitting, embroidery, sewing, and quilting. Projects will include knit baby hats, drawstring backpacks, hand dyed yarn, quilt blocks and other fun fiber art items. Some Items created will be given to bless local ministries.
