Art by Whitefield Academy Students Opens in Art Gallery

Art works by students of Whitefield Academy's Middle and Upper Schools are now on display in the art gallery.

Whitefield Academy was formed in 1996 by the partnership of The Cranmer School and the Mount Vernon Christian Academy. The goal of this dynamic union was to provide Atlanta with a Christian school that is academically excellent, financially sound, and spiritually alive.

Each of the two schools brought an important spiritual and material contribution to this historic union; each brought its own history of providential grace and faithfulness in providing Christian education to the children of Atlanta. The first of the schools, Mount Vernon Christian Academy, operated grades 8 - 12 on its fourteen-acre campus at the corner of Northside Drive and Mount Paran Road for twenty-three years. From its formation in 1973, the Mount Vernon parents, students, alumni, administration, and board of trustees, worked tirelessly to maintain a Christian, private-school alternative in northwest Atlanta.

Whitefield's Fine Arts program encourages students to develop artistic skills to reach their creative potential and build the confidence to express themselves. Whitefield students, through age appropriate and challenging curriculum, explore many techniques to express their individual creativity.

Stacy Quiros, Fine Arts Director, has assembled a show of the children's art work for an exhibition in our gallery through January 3, 2015.
