Great photos featuring one of my favorite art museums for kids located here in DC! Your kids might tell you the author has his Elements and Principles of Art mixed up, but let them know the writer is trying to have a different conversation:) ............In this Sunday's (September 25th) paper.

Fifth Graders had a chance to explore how to use the vanishing point in ongoing special workshops held Thursdays and Fridays at 12:00 in the art room... an OPEN ART opportunity. Even Bob Thurston, our math specialist, took advantage of Mr. Clayman's enthusiasm and expertise!

It's great to see the creative juices flowing at the noon hour... some 4th and 5th graders choose to spend recess in the art room (by getting an "ART" pass from their teacher at 12:00.) They enjoy painting, constructing, weaving, exploring art on the Macs (or pretty much anything they come up with that falls in the category of the visual arts!)
In October, the pottery wheels will open for workshops and practice, and soon students in all grades will have time to finish incomplete work... we don't all create great works of art at the same pace and some of us need more time!

I hit the jackpot when Anthony Clayman was assigned to the art room as my student teacher! He comes to Lafayette after working in the arts, designing stores, logos, murals, and so much more. We feel lucky he decided to turn the fun times he had working with his son's classmates into a full time job teaching art! Read more about Mr. Clayman in the upcoming Tuesday Bulletin.
