Message from the Director of Fine Arts

Fine Arts are a priority at Landmark Christian School at every grade level. We believe that God has called us to develop students spiritually, intellectually, physically, and artistically. Our desire in the Fine Arts department is to send out Renaissance men and women to impact the world for Jesus Christ. All of our students are exposed to both the visual and performing arts beginning in elementary school through high school. Whether it is art, band, chorus, theatre, guitar, photography, or praise band, every student is encouraged to develop their creativity. 

The Landmark Fine Arts Department is committed to providing quality instruction, engendering within the student a love and appreciation for the arts, and developing a disciplined artist in a nurturing environment where Christian values are modeled. Our goal is to provide the serious student maximum opportunity to learn and grow as well as to create an environment where students are enriched as a result of their exposure to the arts.

The faculty acknowledges the Lordship of Jesus Christ and seeks to integrate faith and life through artistic expression in hopes that all creative endeavors (concerts, plays, painting, homework, casting, etc.) will be guided by God, the True Creator. It is our hope that students educated under the guidance of the Fine Arts department will leave Landmark prepared to impact the artistic world for Jesus Christ.

In art, we are once again able to do all the things we have forgotten; we are able to walk on water; we speak to angels who call us; we move, unfettered, among the stars. We write, we make music, we draw pictures because we are listening for meaning, feeling for healing. And during the writing of the story, or the painting, or the composing or singing or playing, we are returned to the open creativity which was ours when we were children. We cannot be mature artists if we have lost the ability to believe which we had as children. An artist at work is in a condition of complete and total faith. Taken from Walking On Water by Madeleine L'Engle.

  • Commercial Music Pathway

    As part of the Landmark Academy of the Arts, the Commercial Music Pathway is a series of courses that trains students in the complex world of collaborative songwriting and music production. Through studying well-written music, students will learn to apply well-established songwriting principles to communicate a theme well. Learning how to share ideas to their group and navigate compromise between differing visions of their art is a cornerstone of our interactive project-based learning environment. Production from various genres and time periods will inform students decisions with their own music. Music copyright, licensing, contracts, mixing, mastering, time feel, and music theory from a songwriting perspective will all be discussed.
    Students fulfill their independent study requirement through required weekly private lessons in either their instrument or in music production using Pro Tools, the industry standard for engineering in the music business. Their class capstone project is a portfolio of songs in which they have written, performed, produced, and engineered. This portfolio is released to all digital streaming platforms under the name LCS Blackbox Production. This music is also entered into a music library through our partners in Los Angeles with the potential to be licensed for film/TV, earning students’ royalties on their art. Artist showcases at the end of the year, highlight the talent of these budding musicians and giving them live performance experience writing charts and working with musicians and sound professionals.
  • Fashion Design Pathway

    As part of the Landmark Academy of the Arts, the Fashion Design Pathway teaches students foundational design, sewing and business skills to help students develop their own online portfolio, market their fashion line, and introduce students to various careers in the fashion industry. 

    Students can earn their independent study hours through participating in internships, freelance skills application for client needs, retailing their designs, or their capstone collection-making process. The capstone project is a collection of 10-12 looks designed and made by each student, accompanied by their portfolio for the creation of the collection. Their collections will be showcased in a yearly Landmark Fashion Show.
  • Film Production Pathway

    Part of the Landmark Academy of the Arts, the Film Pathway is led by Billy Dickson asc, who has over forty years of industry experience, including producing Ally McBeal, One Tree Hill, Believe, and many other television series and movies. Twice, Dickson's work with Ally McBeal was nominated for an Emmy. At Landmark, students in the film academy complete two years of consecutive film courses, culminating in work in the advanced courses where students are collaborating as a team on festival-length films. 

    The independent study work that students accrue is earned through taking on independent projects for the school and community, with a completed portfolio of self-directed creative work showcasing the students' ability to film, edit, and produce. The capstone project for the student occurs at the Landmark Film Festival where parents, students, school faculty, and community are invited to view the student portfolios.
  • Visual Arts Pathway

    As part of the Landmark Academy of the Arts, the Visual Arts Pathway prepares students for a concentration in areas that include sculpture, ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, digital, or a blended selection. Students begin producing a body of work rooted in knowledge and practice gained in foundational classes. Collaborative discussions between students and mentoring faculty launch the student into an artistic study fueled by the student’s passions, curiosity, and media interests.

    Students earn independent study hours in the studio outside of class,  off-site hands-on learning experiences, museum or gallery excursions, and documented personal studio time. The approved students’ capstone experience culminates in a collaborative show in our Black Box Theater with family and friends celebrating in true art-opening style.

We understand the value of fine arts and the positive impact they can have on children, from music and theatre to art activities in the classroom. We challenge our students to discover the artistic gifts that God has given them. We ensure that all of our students participate in band and chorus at some point throughout their tenor with us. As they grow, we expand their artistic horizons even further with film, graphic design, fashion design, and so much more. We want our students to find their gifts – be it elementary music or visual arts – and grow their God-given gifts.
