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.

A Story of 9 Year Old Ingenuity

Check out this link to the heartwarming story of a 9-year old boy who made a whole series of arcade games out of cardboard and set them up in his dad's east L.A. used auto parts shop. The games even dispense tickets (he crawls in the back of the box and pushes them through a slot) which can be redeemed for prizes.
