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.

Exploring the Hirshorn... Always Something Thought Provoking

I spent this past Sunday afternoon at the Hirshorn with my son, finding inspiration in the found object sculpture, the zodiac heads, and the sculpture garden on a delightful day... what a refuge and an inspiration! I highly recommend this museum to inspire conversations about art and life.
Beginning this week and running until 2014, “Belief+Doubt” will cover 6,700 square feet of surface with bold slogans that are 12 feet high, and black and white and re(a)d all over.
