This paper discusses how Christian Haitian high school students can study and make art in a culturally appropriate manner while considering the art history of their country. A curriculum is suggested that focuses on the seven elements of art and multiple lessons are included that are rooted in nature from the belief that God is the Great Creator. The questions that drove the research in this paper are: what are the design components of a disciplined-based, historically and culturally relevant, art curriculum for a high school in the Fond-de-Blancs region of Haiti? And 2) What does a liberal arts education, including art education, mean to students in developing countries like Haiti?
