"We have been thrilled to watch the hand of the Lord bringing Choose Art from a dream to practical reality. Every Christian School should now be able to provide their students a quality art curriculum with this programme. You may be assured that we are supporting the use of this programme in all of our western Canadian Schools."
- B & B Carson Consultants International
"Not only have the children grown artistically, but also spiritually. The 'Scriptural Theme' in each unit is a very important foundation in this program. The children have learned to work together in unity, to say uplifting words, and to serve one another in love. I am very pleased with the results I see in each child!"
- Christine Goertzen, Christian Centre Academy
"Thank you so much for the Choose Art program. I appreciate the fact that the students learn the different elements of art such as pattern, line, texture, etc. as opposed to just doing 'crafts' in art period.
"The student booklets are a great idea, and the diversity of projects and the fun ideas make for an exciting art class! The children have especially enjoyed the 'Box Sculpture Animals' and 'Space Pictures' this year.
"As a teacher, I have appreciated the scriptural themes and memory verses. They provide a good balance to the practical part of the lesson and even enhance it.
"God bless you in your vision for art education in Christian schools!"
- Rebecca Donison, Harvest City Christian Academy
"This is our third year on the program, and now we cannot imagine a school year without Choose Art for our students. We have benefited greatly from the time and prayer that you have so diligently invested in the design of Choose Art. The flexibility of your program was graphically revealed to us this year when our art teacher moved from our town. We had to substitute a 'willing mom' to spearhead our Choose Art program, which she did with fear and trepidation. However, after only one month into the course, we all found that the teacher's manual was so explicit and easy to follow that our 'willing mom' has become an enthusiastic art teacher. Choose Art is an affordable, practical, and feasible opportunity for small Christian schools, as well as large ones, to offer a quality art education program. We would encourage all Christian schools to 'choose' Choose Art for their art education curriculum. It is a gift from God!"
- Kindersley Christian Academy, Kindersley, SK
"We have been using Choose Art for three years. I find that it has been very well set up with all the instructional help that is needed. Choose Art teaches the visual elements and principles of art and design which I appreciate, as an Art specialist.
"I have had parents teach the lessons with ease, finding them easy to follow. I like the scriptural theme for each unit and the photos of sample projects in the back. The students have enjoyed the projects, especially when they are all put up for the parents to see. The binders are very neat and tidy looking in the Art room."
- Heritage Christian School, Kelowna, BC
"As a principal I really appreciate the character building that is implemented throughout the curriculum. The stories that go with the lessons are very interesting for the students. They always look forward to this time of day. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking for an Art curriculum."
- Meadow Lake Christian Academy, Meadow Lake, SK
