WHAT WE DO
In this pivotal time in history, creative expression, compassion, and generosity are more important than ever.
We provide projects that engage kids (and adults!) in creative problem-solving and artistic expression.
Our projects are distributed in the form of physical kits (where computer access is limited) and online around the world.
We engage people of all ages in community projects. The goal is for "look what I did" to become "look what we did together."
Our make • play • solve • move + share projects provide a framework for sparking imaginative ideas and building confidence. We strive to design projects that do not require expensive or hard-to-find materials. Most of our projects only require a pencil, paper and an open mind! We promote hand drawing and construction over computer time but have videos and YouTube links that help visual learners.
We carefully curate and promote inspiring educational resources that offer free access to museums, literacy, drama, science, film, math, art, and health and fitness.
We encourage participants to:
Use the framework of our projects to spark their creative energy
Explore how every day objects can be used in new and creative ways
Share by giving someone something they made, sharing a digital photo or video, or participating in our rotating community galleries
Make their own art supplies such as ink pads, papers straws, and play dough
Use the library and internet as resources
Pass on what they'd learned from the projects to others
