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.

Architects Design a New Building for the DC Scene

Third graders have begun creating their architectural models... Our buildings celebrate the relationship between Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass (their DC Theater Cafe theme.) We have libraries, museums, memorials, universities, institutes, and even a homeless shelter! Our models will be on display at the DC Theater Cafe in May!
