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.

Dragon Shadow Puppets Perform to Wish You a Happy Chinese New Years!

Earlier this month spiky dragons danced and cavorted to traditional Asian music in a magical shadow puppet show. First graders were very excited to perform for staff members, parents and our teacher, and then pose for a photo op. 

We hope our dragons bring us much luck in the New Year!!!
