Mission Statement

The mission of the Lutheran High School Art Department is to prepare students to have the confidence, knowledge, and tools to find the courage to be creative.

Much is being written today about the need for opportunities for our students to be creative. Art classes are an excellent environment for students to explore new ideas in a safe, light environment.

Courageous expression of new and different ideas is a skill that's honed in an art classroom. The LuHi Art Department will push students to expand their comfort zone in every way. We understand and nurture students who respond best to visual learning. Innovative thinkers need training and encouragement.
