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.

Open ART 2013-14 is Open For Business

One of my favorite times of the day is a relaxed noon hour where the art studio is full of 4th and 5th graders exploring a variety of mediums from wood sculpture to the pottery wheel. Open Art, which happens during the student's recess times, is also a time for all Lafayette 1st-5th graders to complete classwork. 
 The delightful woman in the center is our new student teacher, Ayesha Johnson, with us Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the 2013-14 school year!
5th graders are exploring the pottery wheel with individual coaching sessions and chances to practice on their own with friends!
