Visual Arts education is a necessary part of educating the whole person and is taught at LCA with the personal, social and cultural significance of the visual arts in mind. We want students to mature artistically through direct technical, conceptual, and creative involvement with a variety of medium, with the opportunity to display their work and receive constructive criticism.
The Visual Arts utilizes God-given gifts such as the senses, imagination, knowledge and judgment. Visual Art offers a framework for seeing and grasping the world around us and provides expressive outlets for ideas and emotions as people respond to their God, others, the environment and themselves. Visual Art is a fundamental form of human experience and expression.
LCA students from the Visual Arts department have many opportunities to exhibit their work. Pieces are showcased in Whole Foods of Woburn and entered into the Boston Globe Scholastic Art Contest. The paintings, pottery, drawing, photography and digital artwork are a focus of ArtsFest, a spring celebration of the LCA Fine Arts program. Students' works also line the LCA hallways, enhancing our community.
