Electives supplement the core subjects for a well-rounded education. Studies such as art, health, and family life skills expand your child's horizons and prepare him for the future. Art education develops your child’s capacity for imaginative response to his surroundings. BJU Press’s art curriculum includes simple, step-by-step lessons for the elementary grades and basic drawing techniques for the upper grades. Family Life Skills explores the nature and aspects of the family from a biblical perspective. Your child will learn about roles within the family, changes that affect the family, family unity, spiritual and physical growth, intellectual development, social growth, and finances.
