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.

The EARTH Without ART is Just EH...:)

OK, so how do you celebrate Earth Day? With ART of course... art with a message... what a great way to empower young artists to know they can make a difference in whatever cause is near and dear to their heart! Tomorrow is EARTH day and Lafayette's 3rd graders created art that communicates their love and desire to care for this Earth... their Earth! Thanks to some committed parents their art became part of our Earth Day celebration on Earth Day eve!

In conjunction with our Earth Day festivities, a temporary garden in our temporary space gets a celebratory banner thanks to some skilled 3rd-5th grade artists!
