The Fine Arts Academy builds upon the already outstanding arts program present at Lamar. Our award-winning Bands, Choirs, Orchestras, Classical Guitar Ensemble, Theatre Troup and Visual Arts programs are excited and ready for the challenges and opportunities ahead. In the 2014-2015 school year, we will be adding Digital Arts and Media as a strand in the Academy.
Lamar provides a program for students to pursue an accelerated arts curriculum in middle school. By creating a middle school with a fine arts focus for Austin, the Academy will fill an important role in our city. The FAA will feature partnerships with arts organizations and artists drawn from the internationally recognized Austin arts community, McCallum High School and the University of Texas at Austin.
