GCSA Takes Students on Educational Flight Through Art
GULF COAST SCHOOL OF ART PRESENTS, "THE STUDY OF BIRDS: A BIRD'S-EYE VIEW'
Gulf Coast School of Art (GCSA), The Art Institute of Visual Learning, is challenging the minds of young students through fine art education, providing a defined platform for visual learning.
GCSA, a leader in art innovation, is at the forefront of art education with designing an educational model called, ‘smART,’ that combines all core subjects with the foundation of art itself.
Introducing state-of-the-art student exhibitions and art studies each academic year, Gulf Coast School of Art presents, “The Study of Birds: A Bird’s-Eye View.” The Fine Art Exhibition will be held on Sunday, May 21 at The Biloxi Visitor’s Center.
Evaluated by GCSA’s fine art department, yearly art studies exist solely to inspire and challenge students across art disciplines to push the boundaries of creativity and mind advancement. Over the 9-month art course, GCSA students are taught the scientific detail of bird feathers, mathematical proportion, as well as, species observation and variation to studying a range of flight forms, determining light sources and even drafting blueprints.
A primary emphasis of all taught curricula is founded on biblical principles that point all of creation back to God, the Creator. Not only are semester art studies centered around biblical teachings, the foundation of all educational factors and services represented at the Gulf Coast School of Art are rooted in this purpose. The exhibit is intended to function as an act of worship in which a body of artists come together to use the gifts God has given to glorify His name and be a witness to the city in which He has placed us.
The fine art exhibition will celebrate and showcase a line of completed works from GCSA’s annually selected students that will represent their applied studies from the year. As collaborative visions between GCSA and the student are expressed, each artwork reveals a creative, youthful perspective yet defines the excellence of fine art.

The upcoming exhibition, “TWELVE & BEYOND: A Biblical Journey,” in fact, exceeds the boundaries by advancing into a fine-art realm of historical facts based directly from The Bible. The exhibit is intended to function as an act of worship in which a body of artists come together to use the gifts God has given us to glorify His name and be a witness to the city in which He has placed us.
Various Scriptures of The Bible are brought to life by the examination and research produced by 10 of GCSA’s selected Exhibit students, ages 6-16. In collaboration with GCSA, each Exhibit student was taught a range of fine-art techniques and processes over a six-month art semester. Each painting will stand taller than your average-height student, measuring over 5 feet of original art that will be represented in historical form.
The veil is torn as textual content from both the Old Testament and New Testament of The Bible are transformed into visual images evoking emotion, relevance and a personal calling to discipleship. Some of which images to expect at the Exhibition are paintings portraying Jesus’ most profound, recorded miracles. As collaborative visions between GCSA and the student are expressed, each painting reveals a creative, youthful perspective.
The exhibition title , “Twelve and Beyond,” is derived from, and fulfills, verses from Matthew 28:18-20. The number 12 represents the twelve disciples of Jesus. “and Beyond” identifies the discipleship following and found both Today and To Come – All serving One purpose in making disciples of all nations.
