Meet our Fine Arts Faculty

The Fort Bend Christian Academy Fine Arts Department endeavors to provide an educational and spiritual environment in which God reveals His creative nature through our students for His glory. We desire that students, being led by the Holy Spirit, will grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ as they develop the artistic, theatrical and musical gifts given to them by their Creator.


Pam BellPam Bell, Art Teacher | FBCA

Middle School Art Teacher

B.S. Elementary Education, Art, Texas Tech University
Certification: Art 1-8

Pam Bell has taught ASCI award-winning Middle School artists at FBCA for 15+ years. “We detail God’s wonder, achievement, purpose and plan,” explains Mrs. Bell, “We examine small details like eyelashes and their purpose.” The students learn to view God’s patterns and elements as they draw in Black & White and Color, do watercolor paintings, printmaking, clay sculpture and acrylics. Mrs. Bell is excited that both seventh and eighth grade classes will expand their talents as the Middle School now has the opportunity to use the ceramics studio.

It is my intention to provide a welcoming environment with individual attention and creative expression," said Ms. Costner.

Students have art making options and are encouraged to pursue projects that are personally engaging and challenging. Ms. Costner teaches Art I, Art II, and Art III.
