Visual Arts

Art gives the student the basic skills and knowledge necessary to communicate in each art form. Students will understand and apply the elements and principles of art while working with various media to create original works of art. Media can range from graphite, tempera, watercolor, oil and acrylic paint, clay, plaster, printmaking, airbrush, stone carving, and collage. The student will evaluate master artists’ works and develop an appreciation of art they find in everyday life. The student will be given opportunities to compare cultural diversity. Finally, students will develop a portfolio and apply the principles of aesthetics and art criticism.

Several levels of study are offered at LCS: Intro to Art, Art 1, Advanced Art, and Independent Art.
