    The Lake Dallas High School Art Department is built on a commitment to the support and practices of the arts in our school and the community. The Visual Art Department will implement and sustain an art education program fundamental to the development of knowledgeable, responsible, productive and creative human beings. It is our goal to review, reinforce, and develop art skills, knowledge, and understanding of aesthetics, analysis, historical, cultural, social, technological, interdisciplinary and global connections.

    The arts are basic to any educational program and have a generative power. Authentic, active learning integrates higher order thinking and knowledge. Arts education values both the process and the product. The arts have a far reaching potential to help students achieve educational goals outside the discipline.
