Creative Art Director. Elizabeth Caesar
Elizabeth's mission is to expose her students to a variety of artistic principles, media, galleries, museums and tools, that help to stimulate their creativity. An alumna of the Corcoran School of Art and Design, Elizabeth is a Desktop Publisher/Graphic Artist by profession, but painting and creating works of art is her passion. Music, color, and movement, are her sources of inspiration, and she explains that she often draws from her past experiences as a steelpan bass player to transfer the rhythms of steel band music into her poems, and her canvases.
Elizabeth’s vision for her students is that their art experience at CAFE is instrumental in promoting confidence, and developing an artistic awareness of their surroundings. That they continue to utilize the methods and processes learned from creating works of art (analyzing, planning, exploring, etc.) in their day-to-day life as they grow into adulthood. CAFE Parent Association (CPA)
CPA was formed to ensure that parent involvement remains an essential part of CAFE’s program. The CPA provides a strong supporting arm for the organization and many of them are involved in a leadership role within the organization.Parents are required to volunteer their time, attend parent meetings and workshops, and assist with coordinating most activities within CAFE.
In 2013, CAFE acquired 2/3 acre from a stakeholder to use as a farm to plant organic and ethnic crops. CAFE’s parents harvest the crops and distribute it among the CAFE families. They also promote healthy life styles by teaching food preparation and sharing recipes using the crops they have grown.
