VISUAL ARTS

 

The LFC Visual Arts program is designed for beginner artists in grades kindergarten through eighth. Students first learn the basic art techniques and are gradually introduced to the Elements of Art, Principles of Design, art history, sculptures and art critiques. Students are encouraged to use a variety of problem-solving skills and strategies that can be applied throughout all core subjects.


Teaching the curriculum of Visual Arts is an ongoing process. The Elements of Art and Principles of Design, which is the basic building blocks of art, are introduced in kindergarten. These building blocks are reinforced as students proceed to higher grades. Students are introduced to basic drawing techniques, the color theory,  pottery, papier mache’, painting, and art critiques.
