Arts in Education

Nurture the innate creativity living within each child! Puppetry, music, and the wisdom inherent within the folk tale provide positive models for expression and empathy, and kindle within each participant imagination, possibility, and meaningful connection with others. 

"When children pretend, they’re using their imaginations to move beyond the bounds of reality. A stick can be a magic wand. A sock can be a puppet. A small child can be a superhero."--Fred Rogers
