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.

Picnic Table Makeover!

Time for a much needed makeover!  Industrious fifth graders scrubbed, sanded, primed, and finally began repainting the Broad Branch Market picnic tables this week. We enjoyed the sunshine, the camaraderie and the satisfaction of contributing to the beautification of the Lafayette neighborhood!
