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.

Post Peeps Contest Enriched by Lafayette's Creative Students

Lafayette students Maddie and Tess Breeden took over their kitchen a few weeks ago to create "The Million Peepet March" for the Washington Post Peeps diorama contest. Their delightful entry was just another example of the imagination and resourceful creativity existing in our Lafayette community! I am one proud art teacher:)
