THE ART BOX: an online space for families to connect and build a culture of creativity.
This community is all about raising creative kids and making creativity a culture in your home. I’ve long believed that art should be a way of life and not just a special event. Now, I’m working to support families build their own creative cultures.
As a dad, artist/writer and elementary school teacher for over a decade, I come loaded with years of experience working with kids, raising kids, and fostering creativity -- not duplicity.
Art matters. Learning to harness the power of their creativity allows kids to take risks, solve problems, communicate, emote, and navigate their lives.
This isn’t a place for cookie cutter crafts — there are plenty of spots online for those (and they’re cute, but that’s not what we do). This is a place to (as Ms. Frizzle would say) take chances, make mistakes and get messy!
