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.

Fifth Grade Parents... St. Paddy's Day is Your Lucky Day!!! Make it Happen at the Auction!

Each year the traditional Lafayette quilt is a labor of love created to raise money for our school at the Lafayette Auction! The lucky high bidder this year will own a unique and priceless memory of their child's time at Lafayette made of the lucky greens in honor of St. Patrick's Day. 

Every 5th grade student has sewn a patch, then interested students worked with parent Don Rutledge and me during their noon hour to machine sew the patches together.
Some of our noontime sewers!

  Finally, we had a quilting bee where the knots were tied to hold the puffy "sandwich" together.
Tying the knots in our quilting bee!!!
 

I took it home for the weekend to bind the edges and brought it back to school for all the 5th graders to sign on the back with silver ink! Don't miss this chance to own this wonderful creation!!!
