Arts Integration at LFCSA

Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts is a place where students, teachers, parents, and the community collaborate to create a nurturing and inspiring learning environment where students can develop academic and life skills through creativity, inquiry, investigation, and reflection. Our arts integrated curriculum nurtures curiosity, confidence, collaboration, resilience, and civic engagement, enabling students to approach learning in different ways.

Our approach to arts integration brings together learning objectives of two or more disciplines, including the arts. Students construct and demonstrate understanding through the art form, while gaining a deep appreciation for the expressive and communicative qualities of the arts and their role in society.  LFCSA endeavors to become a model arts integration school and training facility that shares best practices and impacts our educational system and community.
