Who We Are
Creating art and artists who reflect our Creator
Westview Arts Academy exists to provide professional, affordable, and Christ-centred arts training for students of all ages. We recognize that God is the ultimate creator and desire to produce art that reflects His truth, beauty, and love. We will create art and artists who will impact our community, city, and world for Christ.
We believe in the Creator of the heavens and the earth, a triune God consisting of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; a God who is eternal, infinite, creative, loving, and holy; a God who made everything, including people in His image, giving all of creation and the creative process value.
We believe art imitates what God first created and should, therefore, be reflective of the excellence, beauty, and design inherent in all of creation.
We believe art also reflects our experience as human beings living in a fallen and sinful world, but with the hope of redemption through the death and resurrection of Jesus and should, therefore, tell the whole story, a story of both ugliness and beauty, of pain and joy, of death and rebirth.
We believe art quickly penetrates to the heart and mind of a person on a conscious and subconscious level and should, therefore, be crafted to teach, encourage, and challenge people, bringing glory to God.
We believe people feel more alive when creating and should, therefore, have access to arts training.
We believe the arts can and have been corrupted by people, but have no inherent evil and should, therefore, be reclaimed for God’s Kingdom.
Westview Arts Academy is a ministry of Westview Baptist Church. We hold to their beliefs in relation to God, people, and the church.
