Mission

 

The mission of the Lafayette Parish Visual Arts Department is to provide each student with the skills needed to experience a lifetime love of art while stimulating creativity and critical thinking skills. We will also integrate core curriculum into the arts curricula on a daily basis in order to enrich the content and meet state and national standards.

 

Vision

 

The Lafayette Parish Visual Art Department will encourage all students to achieve their greatest potential by:

  • valuing a life enriched by the arts
  • using the arts as a creative expression
  • achieving cognitive development (critical and flexible thinking)
  • learning other content areas through the arts
  • embracing Acadiana's strong presence of artistic expression
  • providing an opportunity to select art as a profession
  • inspiring students to realize their full artistic potential while equipping them with the skills necessary to succeed in today's world.
