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.

Arts Integration Patriotic Style

It never fails to move me when Lafayette's first graders share their learning at our Veteran's Day Patriotic Celebration Concert. This year, Mr. Clayman worked with our first graders to learn about stamps and our Patriotic symbols. Their work was proudly displayed at our concert.
