Welcome to the Visual Arts Department!
The Visual Arts Program at Lexington High School is massive in its depth and breadth. Incoming freshmen who wish to pursue advanced art courses are required to take either Foundations of Fine Art or Foundations of Digital Art first. After this requirement has been fufilled, a vast array of courses are available (please see the program of studies for the full list of courses, or the prerequisite pdf link listed below). Students at Lexington High School are able to choose from traditional courses, such as Drawing, Painting, Darkroom Photography, Sculpture, Ceramics and Illustration, as well as Digital Arts courses, such as Animation, Digital Video Production, Web Design and Digital Imaging.
Cutting across each course are several commonalities, such as class critiques, an emphasis on process (how you get there) and product (the end result), composition, design, and craftsmanship. It is the goal of the Visual Arts Department that each student who takes an art class leaves with a greater appreciation and understanding of the Arts.
