Mosaic School of Music & Fine Arts


MAG Church is excited to announce a new program called Mosaic School of Music and Fine Arts! Many of you are familiar with Psalmist School of Music and Fine Arts in the past.  Since the founders of this organization have recently retired, we strongly feel that the mission of Psalmist should go on, especially in Medina County.  


We have a large percentage of homeschool students and families who want to grow in Christian character by glorifying God, and desire to develop their tools for effective worship and evangelism.   With that being said, MAG Church (830 Lafayette Rd, Medina, OH 44256) will be hosting  “Mosaic School of Music and Fine Arts.” 


We will be offering classes in dance, music, art, science and sign language!
