Lower School

The goal of the Lower School visual arts program at LCDS is to help students gain self-confidence as they develop their perceptual and technical skills and their appreciation and understanding of art. Lower School students work with a wide variety of media and materials in both two and three dimensions. In each grade, students learn about the elements and principles of art along with major art movements and artists through developmentally appropriate lessons. Through interdisciplinary studies, students explore how art and art history connect with their other subjects. And multicultural art forms are studied to give students a balanced and well-rounded understanding of art and its links to every culture. With each studio experience, their technical skills improve, they become more observant of the world around them and they gain confidence in their ability to express themselves in visual form.
