The Visual Arts Department spans digital and traditional design. Included are various techniques of art such as drawing, painting, scultiping, and more. All LMP art studios include large workspaces for students to develop and enrich their creativity and interpretation.
Self-expression takes many forms in our arts program: drawing, painting, pottery, sculpting and more. But art isn't restricted to art classes. We also integrate art throughout our curriculum to enhance lessons and develop critical-thinking skills.
We want our students to be able to think in terms of images, as well as words, so they can express themselves in every way possible. We also hope they appreciate the work of others, begin a lifelong interest in art and embrace experiences that can bring beauty and meaning into their lives.
Our Art Studios
In the Lake Mary Preparatory School Art Studios, students are exposed to a variety of ideas and materials ranging from cut paper to ceramic sculpture.
The Upper School studios are equipped with potter’s wheels, kilns for both ceramic and glasswork, and work surfaces for two and three-dimensional projects.
The Lower School studio has space for a variety of projects, as well as resource materials to teach young students about art history.
Lower School Visual Arts
The Lower School students explore the world of art through a vast array of projects ranging from simple pencil drawing to creating plastic flowers. Projects introduce students to many mediums (paint, graphite, plaster, clay, etc.) and to the history of art and famous artists.
In our well-organized and brightly outfitted Lower School art studio, our students study the masters and even social issues, such as the use of recycled materials. Art classes are among the favorite activities of Lake Mary Preparatory School students.
Middle School & Upper School Visual Arts
Our Middle School Art students participate in a semester or, schedule permitting, a full year of art. Middle School art courses are project-based but stress the use of common design strategies and techniques.
Projects often include paper mache, graffiti art, drawing, and painting. Middle School students may also participate in art competitions and attend a variety of Art Festivals.
In the Art Studios, students are exposed to a variety of ideas and materials ranging from cut paper to ceramic sculpture.
