Fine Arts Programs

Creativity and self-expression are essential components to a Lakeview education and the Arts Department is uniquely placed in both the academic and co-curricular life of the school. We offer courses in painting and drawing, sculpture and ceramics, photography, and digital arts. We also offer courses and performance opportunities in chorus, theater, speech, and drama. Designed to awaken and challenge every student’s desire to create, the Arts Department is guided by practicing artists who love to teach. The artistic work of our students is an integral part of our community and every Lakeview student is involved through our award winning programs.
