 Visual Arts





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.




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.
