Discovery and Expression
At all educational levels, art is integral to an LM education. Creatively taught, art can be a pathway to learn about, or reinforce the learning of, many subjects such as history and geography — even mathematics and science. Lancaster Mennonite provides artistic skills, appreciation and opportunities that nourish creativity and a deeper understanding of God and the world.
Art is an integral part of education at the Kraybill Campus and is used to reinforce teaching many other subject areas such as history — even mathematics and science. Students learn about culture and history as they study art through the ages. Art classes are offered for students in kindergarten through eighth grade, taught by a certified art teacher. Kraybill students regularly participate in inter-scholastic fine arts competition. The campus’s own Palazzo Gallery provides a space for the exhibition of artwork by alumni and local artists.
