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.

A New School Year...Arty Things to Remember

Leaky plumbing? No problem! Art goes traveling into classrooms with a variety of media! We hope to be back in our usual digs soon:)

As the new year begins, DON'T FORGET:


  • to wear old or dark clothes on art days as some media stains even though it claims to be washable
  • 4th and 5th graders can spend noon recess in the art room at "Open Art" most days and that younger students will be allowed to join us on an as needed basis to finish classwork
  • parents are always welcome to come spend time with us but I'll probably put you to work!!! Contact your class art room contact person to volunteer!
  • I'm always looking for extra pairs of hands to assist with matting art and other art room tasks (training provided:) Please drop me a line!
  • to check the art room blog, the art room newsletter (on the HSA website) and the Tuesday Bulletin for current art room news!
Dark colored shirts on art days ensure happy launderers!
