Three Step Process
Inspire. Break Barriers. Empower.
Students watch The Artist create. Drawn into the creative process of original creation, the atmosphere of "school" fades away. Students are inspired, and an experience of agile learning begins.
The Artist offers performance and stories of working, creating, and engaging with the world through their art. Stories transfer information and inspire students to: Break Barriers, Persevere, Innovate, and Engage, Think, Act
Through a workshop, we explore the Role, Value, Impact of art in everyone's life. This provides a tangible goal used to strengthen art, but also hones problem solving, creating, innovation, and the Engage, Think, Act process.
"Research indicates that introducing learners to artistic processes, while incorporating elements of their own culture into education, cultivates in each individual a sense of creativity and initiative, a fertile imagination, emotional intelligence and a moral 'compass' a capacity for critical reflection, a sense of autonomy, and freedom of thought and action."
-United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization
Artist Led Experience
WTAA is a narrative driven experience. The Artist uses their work and life to illustrate skills and qualities needed to thrive in the classroom and beyond. They provide exposure to artistic creation, and the process of turning creative thinking into critical action.
The Role of Art.
Art is more than entertainment. It is more than decoration. It is the key to where we have been, who we are, and where we can dream to go. It embodies the qualities and skills essential to realizing the full potential of people.
A universal communicator, Art breaks barriers and is a prolific educator. WTAA taps into art's full capacity as a pillar of thriving communities, and uses it to empower thinkers, creators, problem solvers, and innovators.
"There is a growing recognition that we need high school and college graduates who are critical thinkers, creators, innovators, entrepreneurs, and collaborators- skills developed through quality instruction in the arts."
