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.

Portrait Fascination

I was thrilled to join 4F and 4K on their expedition to the National Portrait Gallery yesterday morning. 

We got the "VIP tour" from three engaging and knowledgable docents. We heard students wishing the tour were longer... I was in agreement! Who woulda thunk colonial portraits could be SO FASCINATING???

One serious art student capturing all he was learning!
