Arts

The Visual and Performing Arts’s creative vision is led by a spirit of collaboration and designed to empower youth within responsive and compassionate learning environments. Our collaborative-based curricula center on uniting disparate parts of the education process into a powerful experience for every young adult to see themselves and be heard for the uniqueness that they bring to the world.

Our commitment to every student is to help each person vocalize their sense of self-awareness, empathy and agency in a responsive and caring community.

New for 2020-2021: Exploring Identity Curriculum

As educators and students design the future, the process centers around how we first engage with questions before ever seeking answers or resolutions. What if? and Why not? can create fear about the unknown. With the guidance of LJCDS’s creative educators, students will transform fear into transformative actions. 

Some highlights include:

  • In each discipline, we seek to balance intellectual and emotional knowledge for every student to develop into their authentic selves, honor their creativity and contribute to creating an inclusive society. 
  • Essential questions lead the way during our 2020-2021 academic year.

  • VAPA educators will work alongside an interdisciplinary team in collaboration with design and innovation, library science, life skills, service learning, global education, and anti-racist and anti-oppressive educators.

  • The collaborative team works together to create lessons, build community norms exercises, and expand discipline knowledge goals through three-week immersions into each trimester. 
  • Our goal centers on helping both students and educators explore the life-long question, Who am I?

We are committed to enhancing the school’s mission to prepare individuals for a lifetime of intellectual exploration, personal growth and social responsibility.

  • AP Studio Art

    Taught by Ms. Mae with support from Ms. Stringer and Ms. Mac, this class combines students focusing on drawing, design and sculpture, and provides students with a space to create a portfolio of several artworks that all explore a shared theme. Students will choose a theme to investigate yearlong through experimentation in their chosen medium. Students will also work on artist statements, feedback, art historical inspiration, self-expression and time management. As the year comes to a close, students work to document and submit a portfolio and create a website, video or physical show where students can showcase their year of sustained artwork. 

    While LJCDS is utilizing remote learning, we will use synchronous times to introduce new ideas, have class discussions, share finished works, get feedback on works in progress, have 1:1 meetings and look at artworks by other artists. In asynchronous times students will mostly work on art assignments and conduct personal art-related research. 

    We have surveyed students to assess supply wants and needs, and supply kits are being ordered and assembled. Though course materials will be accessible through Blackboard, the class will use Google tools for in-class and out-of-class work. AP classes are currently being organized and materials will be posted once this organization is complete.

Students will also learn about art history, contemporary art and how to analyze and give feedback on the art of their peers.
