Divine Child Elementary School Art is for all students Grades K-8. Our Fine Arts Program has concentrations in fields such as Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, and Media Arts. Every student actively learns and creates in these areas of artistic discipline. The Divine Child Elementary School Art Curriculum is aligned to the National Visual Arts Standards and State of Michigan Standards.
Art Club is offered for Junior High students. Art Club members are able to pursue their own artistic interests through a scheduled after school program.
Art Camp offers new adventures every summer through specialized projects. Students in Grades 5-6 experience Art Camp during their first week of summer vacation. Students in Grades 7-9 can join the Junior High Art Camp which is held in the DCHS Art Studio the first two weeks of August.
Students in Grades K-5 attend a weekly music class in which they experience all aspects of music: vocal, instrumental, and movement. The DCES Music Curriculum is aligned to the National and Michigan Music Standards.
Singing Falcons Grades 5-8:
Liturgical Choir (4-8):
DCES Liturgical Choir students encourage congregational participation in the Holy Mass by supporting the singing of the Mass and learning new music. Throughout the year, a strong sense of camaraderie grows among student singers through the cycles of rehearsals, concerts, and liturgical observances.
Our school produces a winter drama production each year with performances taking place in Divine Child High School's Auditorium. In addition to acting/singing/dancing parts, many students assist off stage as tech crew members and set crew members. No previous experience is necessary. This activity is open to students in grades 5-8.
Students participate in a two week workshop with a complete production at the end. This includes both Elementary and High School students.
