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.

Inspiration in Paris

I experienced a real treat last week at the Musee D'Orsay... Van Gogh's other "Starry Night" and some late life Van Gogh faves of mine in person... there's nothing like the REAL DEAL!!! Hoping all my Lafayette students are able to get to at least one museum this summer to have that up close and personal interaction!
