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.

Miles of Chain Link Fence? Sounds Like a Blank Canvas to Me!

Ms Shapiro's 5th graders recently spent a few art classes creating some public art on our campus fences. We began by planning and looking at photos of other fence artists at work! On a recent spectacular fall day we created our own chain link fence art installation!
