We see, but we must learn to observe.

Mastering the art of “observation” is one of the strengths of the visual arts department at TMA. With our fast paced lifestyles, even the youngest child must learn to be still and observe, so that nothing in God’s wonderful creation is missed. Art instruction begins in kindergarten and progresses though portfolio classes in high school.

Many TMA seniors seek careers in visual arts and earn scholarships to art schools. Students learn to understand and apply the elements and principles of art, building on a strong foundation throughout their years at TMA. The art instructors seek to discover and develop the amazing talent in our children. We give God the glory for what we are able to create and use the gift of art for expression, inspiration, and satisfaction.

Mrs. Amy Rivera graduated cum laude with distinguished honors as the recipient of the “Outstanding Senior in Art Education” award in 2004 from Bowling Green State University in her home state of Ohio. Since moving to the great state of Florida in 2006, Amy has been teaching Art for grades K4- 12. Currently at TMA, she teaches grades 6-12 and instructs our advanced students in AP Studio Art. Even though Amy loves and teaches all forms of visual arts, such as pottery and ceramics, printmaking, painting and much more, her true passion is drawing with pencil on a blank piece of paper. Her favorite thing about teaching at The Master’s Academy is the privilege of inspiring students to be confident not only with their artistic abilities, but with using those abilities to minister the gospel of Christ to a hurting world around them. In her free time, Amy serves alongside her husband, Brian, where they are the youth pastors of New Beginnings Church in Orlando. Amy and Brian also keep busy spending time with their two adorably active young boys, Jaxyn and Linkyn.
