Visual Art

The Fine Arts student at La Salle is challenged to stretch his imagination as he actively searches for ways to express his ideas and communicate with others by playing music, singing, or visual art. 

This artistic pursuit demands a different kind of learning and thinking.  The Fine Arts classes provoke curiosity, require seeing issues from multiple angles, test problem-solving skills, and encourage students to practice self-critique.  As students gain a sense of accomplishment, they build intrinsic motivation and their confidence is boosted. 

The Fine Arts teachers seek to balance academic training and the aim of producing quality performances or products with the daily quest for more moments of gratification and inspiration.  The result is often that our students find their Fine Arts classes to be welcome respites from the daily academic demands. 

Fine Arts students pursue their passions or seek new ones at La Salle through scheduled classes with talented and dedicated teachers who themselves practice their trades and are examples of lifelong learners and lovers of the arts.
