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.

Check Out the Fabulous ANIMALICIOUS!
Don't underestimate the power of an industrious Lafayette student entrepreneur. A group of Lafayette students hatched a plan during open art to create paper mache animals and cute animal faces and sell them to raise money for the Washington Animal Welfare League. For many weeks they have been hard at work during their recess time at Open Art. At their first sale a little over a week ago they raised $96!!! Check out their website to learn more and find out about their next sale: Animalicious.webs.com
