If accepted, 2024 Art Majors will begin their visual art journey at LPHS in an Art II-H cohort class to prepare them for a focused study in intermediate and advanced art course work. The Visual Arts Magnet Program teaches students to develop as independent artists through exposure to areas of art, including but not limited to: Mixed Media-H, Drawing & Painting-H, Sculpture-H, Graphic Design-H, Digital Photography-H, AP Studio Art: 2D Design Portfolio (photo & graphic design options), 3D Design Portfolio and/or Drawing Portfolio.


We present authentic art experiences that mirror the work of professional artists, designers and photographers that are rooted in the Artist Studio Habits of Mind. We provide a pathway for students that express interest in the visual arts through Honors and AP coursework to develop a college-ready portfolio and the skills to successfully transfer into Art School or a University Art Program. Art Majors also have the option to enter the IB Career-related Programme pathway in Visual Art at junior & senior year if they are interested. 


We look forward to seeing your work!
