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 Sporty Look for the Lafayette ART Room

Many thanks to the Washington Tennis and Educational Foundation for their generous donation of 100 used tennis balls to our art room stools. The traditional stools, a new addition to the art program last spring, are now quieter and safer for our youngest and oldest students!  Check out http://www.wtef.org/index.php
