The Fine Arts Program in Lowell Public Schools provides learning opportunities where arts skills, critical thinking, and creative problem solving are emphasized. The program encourages creativity and strives to develop each student's artistic voice. Central to this creative work is utilizing one’s risk-taking, curiosity, and collaborative abilities. The Fine Arts Program strives to build student confidence and resiliency to foster creativity while supporting 21st century skills. The curriculum focuses on developing creative sensitivities and technical proficiencies; supporting literacy in a variety of mediums and expressions; and providing multiple opportunities to develop lifelong relationships with the arts. The department supports collaborative, interdisciplinary opportunities and encourages students to communicate and advocate through the fine arts, seeing this as an important life skill that extends into and complements all other disciplines.
Our Fine Arts Department is comprised of more than seventy vibrant teachers who strive to support a comprehensive arts curriculum at every grade level. Together, we value building connections across the curriculum, maintaining a robust school arts program, and strengthening our deep connections in the Lowell community.
On behalf of the entire department, I thank you for your ongoing support of the arts in Lowell, MA.
