We bring up leaders!”

We strive for a creative and developmentally appropriate, rewarding and joyful process with an emphasis on artistic literacy, creative and critical thinking, and leadership.

Our classes are inclusive for students ages three through eighteen

We emphasize non-competitive and collaborative work and conflict resolution

A partnership is cultivated between students, teachers and community

Students look at anything, find inspiration, authenticity and creativity, use intuition and work through improvisation

Our work matters especially during the critical early years when there is a window of opportunity for creative abilities to be cultivated and imagination to be unleashed
