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.

It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!

The last week of school found us outside sketching what our eyes can see (finding the trapezoids and rectangles, details and textures of the houses on Broad Branch Road) and playing with shaving cream finger painting style (which had the added benefit of scrubbing our art room tables fresh and clean!) Thankfully the weather cooperated and a good time was had by all!
