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.

Third graders in Ms. Yedwab's class enjoy a visit from Mr. Radifera, one of our talented Lafayette parents. We explored what an architect does and tried our hands at drawing plans for our very own houses!
