Excitement is palpable, moods shift... acceptance and celebration of all our differences is our modus operandi in Lafayette's art room! This is a safe space to create and express ourselves!!!
#CHOOSEKIND in the art room!
Our new school year begins with exploring the variety of ways artists express the human face and spirit. Grades 1-3 use Beauford Delaney's "Portrait of James Baldwin" as inspiration for a "selfie" drawing.

|Here's my selfie! Fifth grader's selfies to come!|
And Grade 4 is exploring the power of the pen and the mindfulness of zentangling as we warm up our creative juices for the new school year and begin to think about the message of Dot Day!
|This delightful book embraces the Dot Day message of having the courage to make your mark |
and how empowering and freeing that can be!
What's Dot Day you say? Just a world wide celebration by millions of teachers and students inspired by Peter Reynold's Book "The Dot". This year our Dot Day message includes "Making Your Mark" by #CHOOSEKIND!
