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.

Learning to Look, Loving the Fresh Air

First, second and third graders have been spending time drawing Lafayette and the houses in our neighborhood. From large shapes and forms to minute details and texture, close observation is key.
Noticing the neoclassical columns on Lafayette; third graders wrap up our semester long unit on architecture.
