Art Days

One day every month students at Faith Academy participate in ART DAY.   These days focus on process art and are provided with a variety of mediums to create and manipulate as they wish. Students create any where between 2-5 projects during ART DAY which get to go home at the end of the day. Each month the students have a story time that relates to the medium or colors they will be using during that month’s ART DAY.

Process Art is an artistic movement as well as a creative sentiment where the end product of art and craft, is not the principal focus. The ‘process’ in process art refers to the process of the formation of art: the gathering, sorting, collating, associating, patterning, and moreover the initiation of actions and proceedings. Process Art is concerned with the actual doing and how actions can be defined as an actual work of art; seeing the art as pure human expression.  Therefore, art is viewed as a creative journey or process, rather than as a deliverable or end product.
