From the Art Room- Celebrating the Power of Love!

This past fall, student artists at Lafayette, across D.C. and the entire U.S., contributed art to the American Love Project! The project is inspired by the belief that if we combine the ideals our country was founded on with the power of art, the creativity of the human spirit and messages of love, that will equal American Healing. The site went live on the international day of Peace in September and was planned to culminate in art installations on the anniversary of the January 6th riots this past week. 


Each Lafayette 1st -5th grade student used a quote or message of love and their unique creativity to make a piece of art. Thanks to the superhuman efforts of Lafayette parents Madura and especially Jessica Lettween who spent countless hours devoted to making this happen, we were able to upload art from all of Lafayette’s 1st, 4th, and 5th grades to the website. Your child’s art is searchable by City, School, and first name at 

We are still hoping to include grades 2 and 3, so please e-mail  if you could help us with this initiative!
