VISUAL ARTS

In visual arts, students at all grade levels work with a variety of materials and fine craft techniques.

From learning the fundamentals of art and the principles of design to experimenting with various materials, Lowcountry Preparatory School’s visual arts program develops students’ abilities, often with award-winning results.

Lower School

Visual arts at the Lower School level focuses on growth, exploration, and enjoyment. Children learn the fundamental elements of art and principles of design.  The art curriculum enhances the broader Lower School curriculum.  We enable students to make authentic connections between their arts learning and curriculum in other areas such as science, literacy, social studies, technology, and math. Young artists develop a larger art vocabulary while investigating historical works of art, artists, and cultures.

Middle School 

The Middle School visual arts program is centered on the development and discovery of each student’s artistic abilities within a variety of mediums. Art design principles are introduced and design elements and principles are applied. Art history and art criticism are utilized as tools for learning.  They are used to appreciate former and present day cultures within the United States and throughout the world. Art is used as a basis for creative thinking, problem solving, and decision-making.

Upper School

Upper School students have the opportunity to take AP Visual Arts courses which include AP 2D Art and Design, AP 3D Art and Design, AP Drawing, and AP Art History.  Student works are entered in various art competitions and displayed at different exhibitions throughout the year.
