Guest Artist Series

The Fine Arts Department at Calvary Christian High School is pleased to sponsor and host the 2016-17 Guest Artist Series. This series is designed to encourage and challenge students, faculty, and local arts patrons and practitioners to consider in a fresh way the calling of the artist within communities of Christian faith. We are grateful for the opportunity to host professional artists who will share, perform, and instruct our students and faculty in their area of the arts. All evening performances and lectures are free and open to the public.
