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.

Celebrate Curiousity and Creativity at the Renwick!

What to do when it's snowy or rainy, cold or dreary? Enter the magical world that is the current installation at one of Washington's oldest museums... the Renwick Gallery. Wander through branchy "fairy houses" and stare down the center of a ginormous tree. Marvel at the color of light and how it transforms everyday objects into something mysterious and exciting. This is a show for young and old alike and not to be missed by our curious and creative Lafayette community!!!
