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.

Still Recovering From a Crafty Month!
December is delightfully overwhelming in so many ways… and having an art room covered in happy 3rd grade weavers everyday at open art is one thing that makes it special!
More challenging is the loading and unloading of several hundred pieces of pottery, each of which have to be fired twice… once for bisque and the second time with glaze!
