Canton Creativate- The Imagination Gymnasium
Organized by: Lizzie Lukens Conrad
Canton Creativate is an organization devoted to developing creativity in both children and adults so we can better draw connections, solve problems, and express ourselves. We are not so much about teaching people "how" to paint or"how" to do a craft, but how to think in new ways and develop imagination. And it's lots of fun! Some of the things we offer- An Open Creativate time so children can come in, play with all the arts and craft supplies they don't have at home, and let their imaginations leap off our inspiration for the day - An art appreciation class for children where they learn how to look at art and do their own projects - A creative problem solving class for adults to help them come up with innovative solutions, both in their professional and personal lives, -A sensory playtime designed for children with autism and other special needs to become more attuned and comfortable with their senses in a safe place -And then birthday parties and occasional special project workshops So as you can see this is a really neat and unique place. We have just opened and have gotten started with all the fun stuff. We are just asking for a little help to pay the rent for our studio over the next few months until we become self-sustaining. If you love the arts and believe in what we are doing, please show your support by throwing us a couple bucks and your prayers and well wishes. We took a crazy leap in starting this thing because we believe strongly in the importance of creativity. We are asking you to help us fly.
