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.

Open Art- Noontime Explorations in the ART STUDIO

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!
