HELP US TO BUILD ART ROOM FOR KIDS
The arts are being cut from schools and yet all the research shows that when teens’ creativity and imaginations are fortified, they excel and stay in school longer as well as develop the necessary skills for future success.
 
We believe that a KIDS’s imagination is a right and not a privilege. And, if we don’t fight to protect it, the next generation (of women and men) will suffer.
As we like to say, the future is spelled K I D S
Through this program, we want to:
  • Change the way kids value themselves and teach them to Be Loud
  • Create a world where kids know the value of independent thinking and imagine.
  • Promote and protect kids’ imaginations
A peer-to-peer, self-directed learning lab, ART ROOM is dedicated to activating kids’ imaginations through entertainment, education and community.
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT THESE LESSONS?
Everything! Our goal is to make entertainment more educational rather than education more entertaining. Therefore, ART ROOM will be part classroom and part content platform with original programming, created by both teens and professionals, to engage and inspire imagination.
WHY IMAGINATION?
 
“To know is nothing at all, to imagine is everything”
Imagination and its partner in crime, creativity, are critical components of non-cognitive skills which research shows are greater indicators of future success than, even, IQ. Qualities like tenacity, optimism, self-expression, curiosity, empathy and self-confidence are developed and strengthened through creativity and imagination.
By exercising their imaginations, Kids become more comfortable with risk and failure, develop a stronger sense of self and, in turn, overcome social, cultural, political and physical obstacles, with optimism and confidence.
An arts-rich environment produces:
  • Student achievement across disciplines
  • Student motivation and engagement
  • Development of critical and creative thinking, problem solving and integration of multiple skill sets
  • Development of social competencies including collaboration, self-confidence and tolerance
Creativity is as important in education as is literacy and we should treat it with the same status
THE SCENERIO
Surveys find that schools are narrowing curriculum, shifting instructional time and resources toward math and science and away from subjects such as art, music, foreign language. 86% of teachers polled say that other subjects "get crowded out by extra attention being paid to math or science."
Arts instruction in schools is on a downward trend. Just when they need it most, the classroom tasks and tools that could best reach and inspire these students – art, music, movement and performing – are less available to them.
To change the face of education we suggested we look into these magical skills. They matter. BIG TIME. Forget about their impact on future success (academic, economic, social) or that they directly contribute to teens finishing high school. These skills can help in closing what has been coined the Confidence Gap in KIDS. Sorry, not close… eliminate.
Think of imagination and the resulting non-cognitive skills as preventative medicine. Kids who are fortified with optimism, self-confidence, curiosity and tenacity.
We are purely extracurricular and a complement to Kids’ education. As we like to say, ART ROOM is less education reform and more entertainment reform.
ART ROOM is a place where Kids decide how and when to learn
