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.

We'll Miss Mr. Clayman!

As the New Year begins in the art room, things will seem a little different as our much loved student teacher, Mr. Clayman, has moved on to new things... hopefully involving an art classroom of his own:) 
On Wednesday before the winter break we had a chance to thank him formally and say goodbye in the Great Hall.
***Note his fabulous "golden L" apron, signed by almost all the students at Lafayette and that he's holding a special book containing thank you messages, recipes, poems and more from each class at the school... thank you teachers for your help in making this happen!  We also sent him out in style with a Lafayette hat and shirt and serenaded him with our "Hail to Lafayette"!
