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.

Negative Space/ Positive Experience

One of the wonderful contributions our student teacher in art, Jennifer George, has brought to Lafayette, is a unit on Negative Space with our second graders. From sculptures to recycled collage trees, negative space has never been so beautifully rendered artistically!
