About this Event
Creativity is part of our intrinsic design. Students are unique image-bearers of Creator God and each one is called and gifted by God for creative tasks that give expression to the truth, goodness and beauty of God.
Christian teachers help their students to understand their creativity is an expression of God’s imago dei, shaped into every human being. Creativity gives a visible expression of God’s image in humanity. Learn how to teach our students to become artists, actors, sculptors and musicians that express the story of God through the creative arts.
