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.

Networking With Art Educators is Good Stuff... and Lots of Fun!

Ms. Johnson and I spent an educational and enjoyable evening at the Phillips Collection last Thursday participating in a DCAE (DC Arts Educators) meet and mingle. The Phillips Collection hosted us in style with tickets to see the Van Gogh exhibition, fun favors (check out Ms. M and Ms. J in the postman's beard) and delicious food and drink! 

I once again rediscovered that arts educators across the city are a delightful, vivacious and creative bunch!
