LBPA students participate in a variety of clubs, organizations, and activities. Our students produce and direct their own talent and fashion shows, and lend their talents to a variety of events across the city throughout the year.

LBPA students have opportunity to participate in our masterclass series. During these workshops artists from all genres are invited to facilitate classes on their specific profession/ artistry. Over the past year we have been honored to have Masterclasses conducted by a dance captain from the play Hamilton, an Israeli pop musician, a Disney/ Pixar illustrator, and a teenage actor from the television productions “The Chi” and ATL.

Creativity is not just for artists. It’s for business people looking for a new way to close a sale; it’s for engineers trying to solve a problem; it’s for parents who want their children to see the world in more than one way.
