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.

Teacher's Treat a Treat for the Teacher Too!

How great to have time to fully explore a medium, guided by the student artists! My job is to listen, coax, facilitate, and inspire. Then it's in their hands and I am along for the ride. Today my teacher's treat students decided to go back and take a technique learned when they were young to the next level.
