What we Are & DO
Appreciation for the arts is not limited to artists. Neither is imagination. Neither is art.
We have the ability to become united through the arts, whether you call you self an artist or not. And stifling a child’s creativity only limits development and their overall perspectives.
When examining just the simple foundation of the word art (the expression of human creative skill and imagination) without pretence, That is one of the greatest gift you can offer a child –exploration of their imagination and creativity. By instilling these values of imagination and self-expression in children, the possibilities are endless.
* create a collaborative forum for youth related arts programs, events, workshops, festivals and more…
* design curriculum, goals and ideals which can be shared and developed
* provide children with creative space, tools and confidence
* nurture diversity and embrace experiences
* promote a safe environment for the development of mutual respect and self expression
* actively support programming for schools and youth groups
Artcentricity highlights and supports arts programs in America and further afield by exposing youth to various creative and cultural traditions, leading to a more global appreciation of diversity. We actively seek to build relationships with similar programs in other countries and explore multi-culturalism around the world.
Whether targeting social issues or self-discovery, creative arts have the ability to teach life skills, including the basics of human interaction, communication and collaboration, along with social skills and self-confidence. An added bonus is the way we embrace fun, silliness and absurdity!
Artcentricity promotes this potential through a spirit of openness and imagination.
The experience of a child’s imagination at play becomes an art in itself. As they learn to take risks and experiment within a safe and fun environment, we hope they will engage with their learning and be better prepared for the changing world in which they live. Our policy celebrates every child’s personal artistic style.
Arts and creativity are universal and creative traditions and can be represented in any country and in any medium.
