News from CAK
In a Christian Academy of Knoxville (CAK) tradition going back at least 10 years, students in 2nd and 3rd grades collaborate with high school students on a big art project!
Mrs.Beaumont's elementary artists first draw a creature. Those creatures are then sent to the high school art class, where older students are tasked with drawing the background, being careful to leave the original artist's drawing exactly the same.
Before working on the background, our high schoolers interview the elementary students about colors they may like or activities they may imagine their creature doing.
When finished, the high schoolers bring the drawings back to present to the original young artists. It's a favorite project each year!
Take a look at some below:

Christian Academy of Knoxville's AP Art students are on a mission to spread God's love through their drawings. For the past five years, Ms. Moran's class has taken part in Memory Project, a mission that helps orphans from the Philippines receive drawings of themselves.
"The children view the portraits as treasures," says Ms. Moran. "They send us a video of the delivery, and it is incredibly heartwarming."
Memory Project gathers photos of the children and sends those photos to art students at CAK who then draw them. The finished portraits are all mailed back so the children can keep them. It's a simple thing, but it means so much.
Art students participating include: Isabel Evans, Madeline Parrish, Maya Weaver, Lydia Heinz, Peyton Lollar, Jennings Shomaker, Jackson Scott, Josh Whitaker, Kimmie Garvey, Kennedy Smith, Emily Fry, Molly Grubb, Ellie Fussell, Ashleigh Williams

Three of Christian Academy of Knoxville's Advanced Placement art students will have their art shown in a juried show, the 13th annual East Tennessee Regional Student Arts Exhibition at the Knoxville Museum of Art.
The artwork of Kimmie Garvey, Isabel Evans, and Ashleigh Williams was chosen after high school students from 32 East Tennessee counties submitted 950 pieces of art. Out of those, 324 were chosen for the exhibition. In addition to having their artwork chosen, Kimmie and Ashleigh were also given Honorable Mentions.
CAK is very proud of it's comprehensive and award-winning arts programs. From the time the children are in elementary school through high school graduation, there are programs to cultivate artistic talents both in the performing and fine arts.
