Fine and Performing Arts
The Lamplighter School Fine and Performing Arts program is designed to engage and develop the creative energies inherent in children. The Drama, Music, and Art programs reflect a belief that as children develop creative expression in a safe environment, they also build critical thinking skills and grow emotionally. Varied methods of instruction promote exploration, critical thinking, as well as student participation and engagement. The Fine and Performing Arts curricula are optimal for providing challenges and extensions for exceptional students, as well as consideration for multiple intelligences and cooperative learning.
The curricula are developed using resources such as national standards, current research, and professional conferences and networking. At the same time, the Fine and Performing Arts program honors the school’s mission statement, integrating core curricula and long-held traditions.
