In Lafayette’s art studio classroom we are not only learning about the elements, principles and media of the visual arts, but are using the arts to gain a greater understanding, depth and richness of language arts, math, science and social studies curricula. Using the arts to teach, creates learning that is internalized and understood by children with all learning styles and on multiple levels. By educating students through the visual arts and traditional academic content simultaneously, I help inspire and nurture the truly creative thinkers needed for this new millennium.

First Grade Loves Lines

We're talking about lines, singing about lines, being lines, and sculpting with lines of all kinds! First graders in Ms. Plummer and Ms. Phillip's classes got acquainted with the big kids art room this week, remembered the Elements of Art that artists use to create art, and demonstrated their expertise with creating zig zags, spirals, and curves.

 I loved meeting my new first graders!!!
