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.

New School Year Warm-Ups

Before fourth graders learn about the proportions of the human face and personal expression through a self portrait Frida-Kahlo style, we warm up those observation skills with some BLIND CONTOUR DRAWINGS.

Students in Ms. Culver's class showed incredible focus as they studied and drew their hands and then the faces of their classmates.
