Passion meets at the intersection of creativity and skill, in Lipscomb Academy’s visual and performing arts program that is unlike any other in Middle Tennessee.

Lipscomb fine arts not only recognizes and brings out the best in your child’s creativity while honing the rigorous skills necessary for mastery, but the program also shares a unique collaboration with Lipscomb University to create a one-of-a-kind experience for students at any age, and at any skill level, to refine their passion and talent.

We believe that a broad education in the arts provides children with a better understanding of their world. That’s why we strive to develop your child’s cultural and emotional literacy alongside their math and science literacy. Adults in today’s world must be flexible, able to communicate and solve problems, able to learn new skills quickly, be creative and innovative: all skills refined, reinforced and cemented through arts education. The arts will boost your children’s achievement and build them into innovative thinkers.
