Creativity is the driving force behind all great inventions, and the true leader of innovation. The artistic creative process grows through integration of numerous subjects, captivating student interest and learning. Art and creativity stimulate student problem solving skills, teamwork abilities, acceptance of imperfection and motivation to succeed.
While working for Philadelphia Performing Arts: A String Theory Charter School, I had the honor of being asked to participate in Apple Distinguished Schools, Real Stories video. Click on the link below to see my classroom featured in the video. To me, using the iPad in the art room provides a direct connection to interacting with the world creatively today. The interface between physical and digital mediums in my art room allows students to dive into higher order thinking skills and strategies.
