While playing and exploring in art classes from Pre-Kindergarten through AP Studio Art, students learn lessons that last a lifetime while their skills of creativity, collaboration, patience, problem solving, empathy, and imagination flourish under the guidance of our talented and dedicated art faculty. At LHPS, students explore art as the means to a richer life and pursue art in conservatory-like programs.
