Loveland LOVES intermediate & middle school art!
Loveland LOVES intermediate & middle school art!  Loveland LOVES the arts, and our educators know that participation in performing and visual arts inspires students’ creativity, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. This month in a special series we explore #TigerGrowth in our arts programs at elementary, intermediate/middle and high school level.

Loveland Intermediate School (LIS) & Loveland Middle School (LMS) programs continue to build on the foundation the elementary program establishes for student art studies. Art course offerings at LIS/LMS include fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade traditional art, band, choir and strings. Seventh and eighth grade digital arts and STEM Robotics, and fifth and sixth grade students also have an opportunity to participate in STEMS for Youth Club held after school. The award-winning Loveland Show Choirs begin at this level with the group Revolution.

"Having a well-rounded foundation, that includes exploration into the arts, accompanies our belief that all students are talented," said LIS Principal Garth Carlier. "The key is providing the atmosphere for our students to excel. This happens in and out of the classroom with the exposure to a wide variety of opportunities."

Annually students are recognized for their artistic ability. During the 2015-16 school year, students were selected to perform with the OMEA Junior High Honor Bands. LMS students packed the house with performances of Mulan Jr. and The Lion King Jr.!

“It is important that we give opportunities to students to explore various interests,” said LMS Principal Chris Burke. “Their successful futures reside in the intersection of their strengths and their interests. Our course offerings in the arts allows our students to explore their interests and their strengths outside of the four core subjects.”
