Thanks to you, AHS is able to offer a broad visual arts curriculum including Studio Art, 3D Art, Photography, Digital Design, and Video Production. Funding from LPIE allows AHS staff to be at the forefront of contemporary practices using state of the art tools and equipment.

From visual arts teacher, Rob Porter:
“LPIE and the parents that form and support it are an invaluable asset to the Arts programs at Acalanes. LPIE funds 100% of the Art materials budget. With this generous support, students have access to excellent materials with which to explore the curricula (from introductory to AP) and express their unique vision and artistry. These materials include brushes, paper, drawing pencils, pens, watercolors, acrylics, and a multitude of other materials. Thank you LPIE and parents for providing students with materials that allow them to access rigorous curricula and to succeed at high levels.”

From digital design teacher, Chris Busse:
“Our Digital Design program would not be where it is today without the help of LPIE. I’m so grateful that we have been given up-to-date technology that mirrors the same industry standards as a professional design firm. Thank you so much LPIE for all that you do!”
