High school art classes created "shotgun houses." The "shotgun house" is a narrow rectangular domestic residence, usually no more than 12 feet (3.5 m) wide, with rooms arranged one behind the other and doors at each end of the house. It was the most popular style of house in the Southern United States from the end of the American Civil War (1861–65), through the 1920s. The class used clay to create their own shotgun houses.
High school art students decorated the hallways for last fall's Fall Sports Festival. Using the theme "Fall Into Victory," the students created a beautiful fall scene complete with hay, pumpkins and corn stalks. Check out the North Campus foyer September 17 for this year's Fall Sports Festival decorations!
Art students are always creating pieces and we are quick to put it on display! Throughout the year, various forms of art can be found throughout the North Campus. The pieces to the left were done by high school students using simple Sharpie markers.
You will often see the VCA drama team peforming in chapels and adding a visual image to the worship and teaching. Under the direction of Becky Crain, the drama team has become quite adept at demonstrating spiritual truth through their acting. Stay tuned to chapels this year as a middle school "human video" team will be launching performances!
On August 22, VCA will kick off the 2012-2013 school year with a 4th-12th grade chapel at the North Campus. A team of teachers and staff members will lead worship for the students. "We hope to help the kids connect with God from day one," said assistant principal Derek Chirch. Following the opening chapel, the VCA student worship team will take the stage to lead music.
