About the Pathway

Performing and Visual Artists experience 4 years of integrated academics focused on the Arts, Media, and Entertainment industry. In addition to completing rigorous A-G courses, artists will take a 3-4 year course sequence of classes in the same art field (Animation, Architecture, Dance, Graphic Design, Instrumental Music, Musical Theatre, Photography, Theatre Arts, Video Production, Visual Arts and Vocal Music) as well as train in a secondary field their junior and senior years.


Working with their academic classes and larger community, students are expected to practice their skills outside the classroom with internships, jobs, and volunteer opportunities. Our artists also have the ability to earn additional certifications from LBCC.


Any interested student is welcome to apply to the pathway.

Students interested in the DISTINGUISHED SCHOLAR pathway experience may apply with a minimum GPA of 3.3 and a grade of C or higher in Algebra 1.
