Visual Arts

LCDS’s comprehensive visual arts program inspires imaginative and reflective thinking. Two well-equipped, light-filled art studios and a 15-cubic-foot kiln provide students with the tools they need to try everything from ceramics to holography. The wide array of arts courses encourages students to find their gifts, challenges them to take artistic risks and opens their minds to the variety of creative expression. Exposure to multiple art forms and mediums is at the center of our visual arts program, and projects include throwing clay on the wheels, weaving with various materials, painting with acrylics and drawing with soft pastels. Faculty employ the instructional methods of Discipline Based Art Education (DBAE) and Design Thinking. By the time students graduate, they will have received in-depth training in traditional fine arts.

Kindergarten students’ renditions of The Starry Night add vibrant color to an LCDS hallway. Artwork is displayed throughout the school, with special showcases during annual events.

“Our students are empowered to work within our visual arts studios as if they are their own.  Many of the projects are choice based, allowing students to become independent thinkers where they make core decisions about every aspect of their art production, not only in design but key process and production thinking.”
