Kids' Creative Power ... At Home
"Imagination is the source of every form of human achievemet."
~ Ken Robinson
From the founder:
WHAT IS KIDS' CREATIVE POWER...AT HOME?
It’s an art school on the parlor level of a brownstone in Bed-Stuy. I affectionately refer to it as “Hot chocolate and an iPod.” After years of fitting my arts programming into the structure of The Department of Education and other Arts in Education organizations, I am now happy to literally bring KCP home. This is a place where learning and art can take place in a way that is simple, nurturing, reviving…and FUN. Our methodology is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to learning. Independent exploration is encouraged. The environment is one of the teachers. Curiosity is watered. Ideas are given the room and guidance to be born. Play and imagination go hand in hand with brilliance. Classes are small. Families are cherished. Smiles, high-fives, and hugs are an essential part of the day. Laughter is ever-present and all ages are welcomed. The KID in Kids' Creative Power is about preserving the innate artist within our children into adulthood. And, it's also every bit about the child inside of each of us adults, still yearning to play and to create!
