"Northwood Art Studio is about equipping artists to express on canvas their appreciation for God’s creation.
Through painting and studying works of other artists, students will gain some understanding not only of their techniques but also of the underlying ideas that found their way into the artwork of those artists and in some cases how those very ideas are impacting our lives today.
Northwood Art Studio is about answering, in a positive way, the ideas and way of thinking that have used Art to cast a shadow of doubt on our Judeo-Christian heritage."
Learning to "see" is the first objective and learning to communicate that vision through painting and drawing is our ultimate goal.

Much is being said lately about "Art lies upstream from politics". I totally agree.
Unfortunately, in a time when "creativity" is so prized, most parents who want their kids involved in the arts...to learn to think "outside the box", treat art as if it's at the origin of the stream...but it's not...there's something a little farther upstream, hidden by the rocks, trees and mountains.
Northwood Art Studio's "Where Art Affirms Truth" explores the answer to what lies upstream from Art.
What lies here has already transformed the world & it is close to transforming America. Common Core is a product of this idea.
For too long, it changed me. Has it changed you?
