Visual Arts

Design allows artists to take their creations another step further by enhancing them in Adobe programs for a sophisticated take on photography, illustration, printmaking, and graphic design.
Black & White Photography and Digital Media
While phones have made it extraordinarily easy to capture moments, photography at LFA introduces students to a type of art that incorporates film, digital, and animation into a larger umbrella of self-expression. Students learn advanced techniques as they progress throughout their projects.
Studio allows students to explore different art media using tools like graphite, colored pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, gouache, acrylic, and oil paint.
Drawers learn how to shade and create basic shapes, silhouettes, and sophisticated subjects as a basis before diving into additional forms of arts.
Painting involves a variety of tones, tools, and types of subjects, and students are encouraged to create their own original works as well as recognizable subjects to practice different types of painting techniques.
Woodworking serves as a creative outlet for students who want to craft projects with their hands and by using power tools. Functional objects create the basis of many assignments, but students are encouraged to get creative with their ideas.
Students in sculpture are encouraged to build tangible representations of thematic elements that they see in the academic and outer world.
Students get to mold, craft, and put their own spin on their own pottery by using glazing and printmaking methods.
AP Art History
The AP Art History course challenges students to think about history from an artistic perspective and to recognize how art-making has influenced, and been influenced by, economic, political, and religious factors. Students do not need an art-based background to take the class.
