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.

ARPILLERA Fascination

Want to show your setting and characters, and tell your story visually? Try creating a mixed media STORYTELLING ARPILLERA like these 3rd graders! 

Fabric panels, originally made in Peru and Chile have captivated our imaginations for the past month and our unique interpretations are now being posted for display throughout the building in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.
