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.

Painting with "MUD" is just squishy:)

Korhogo cloth from the Ivory Coast is just the latest African textile explored by our 2nd graders...
Mud is just the latest material we've experimented with... we also had a blast with Fon cloth made of colorful felt, pen and pastel Kuba cloth, Adinkra stamped fabric, and Kente weaving.
