In the LC Art Program students are encouraged to develop their creativity, concentration, and fine art skills.  Class is designed to build the students’ confidence in their creative abilities and increase their visual awareness of the world around them.  Education in the arts can enrich a student’s academic, social, and spiritual life.  The arts in our culture can both negatively and positively influence us.  Christians need to be discerning when viewing the arts and use their creative gifts to point towards God’s truth. The LC art program begins in PreSchool and goes through High School AP Art.
