Sharon Ford has been the Visual Fine Arts Teacher at Bible Center School since 2010. A native of West Virginia, she studied Art at West Virginia State University. While still attending classes in college, she took on a full time job as Assistant Marketing Director at Charleston Department Store for six years in the 1980s. She then became the Advertising Director at Kelley’s Men’s Shop where she was responsible for the creation of all media campaigns involving print, radio, and television.
After fourteen years in the Marketing world, Sharon took a leave of absence from her career to start a family with her husband, Doug. After a few years of being a stay-at-home mother to her daughter, Olivia, Sharon felt God was preparing her for a new ministry, and God brought her to BCS.
Mrs. Ford teaches both Elementary and Middle School Art. Her curriculum is well-rounded, using a project-based hands-on approach involving a vast array of materials and mediums. Students will also learn about famous artists and their styles, art in various cultures, and will learn to appreciate the beauty of all God’s creation.
