Bringing Arts Back to Life
The mission of the Gilbert Christian School Fine Arts Department is to develop a God-glorifying appreciation for and expression of the musical and visual arts by nurturing and training skillful excellence in each of these disciplines.
About our Programs
The fine arts program is an integral part of the school’s educational process. We believe that the arts provide an opportunity to develop a student’s God-given artistic abilities. They also help students learn important skills such as teamwork, dedication, and perseverance. The focal point of the GCS fine arts department is Christ-centered promotion of the arts contributing to the overall development of our students.
Fine Arts Support Team (FAST)
FAST Mission Statement The GCS Fine Arts Support Team is designed to elevate the quality of your child’s music-making experience at GCS by connecting willing volunteers with program needs. The main goals are to: Provide families with an opportunity to shape and grow the fine arts department in a direction that aligns with their goals for their child. Free up program instructors to focus on improving classroom processes and student growth. Create a vehicle through which passionate members of the GCS community can use their gifts to bless others and glorify God. FAST Membership Statement Participation in FAST is open to anyone, regardless of age, residence, or musical ability. Whatever your interest, there is a corresponding need. You will join a team of invested parents who share the conviction that quality music education instills valuable, transferable, life-skills in young learners.
