The Art Crate
Transcript of The Art Crate
We built a creative space and filled it with tools, techniques, inspiration, re-purposed and natural materials.
We encourage innovation, experimentation, and risk taking where dreamers can create, imagine, explore, and build.
Our belief is that freedom of creative and artistic choice builds creative and confident happy learners as they grow into adulthood, as well as critical thinkers that eventually become global problem-solvers.

The Art Crate
The Art Crates goal is to provide hands-on creative opportunities where students learn to be innovators by building 3D structures using re-purposed materials and real world tools that focus on experimentation and expressive freedom.
Students will be given inquiry based prompts that require them to build with reuse and re-purposed materials.
Students will learn structural building techniques using power, mechanical, and electrical tools that will allow them to develop new ideas for building solutions.
Students will imagine, plan, explore, reflect, and create 3D structures through the integration of STEAM activities.

While many education programs have attempted to integrate and encourage innovative learning activities into their full curriculum, lack of funding, time, and resources ultimately limit the full potential a quality program can offer.
It is widely accepted that engaging learners through creative learning opportunities that encourage innovative thinking, exploring, and risk taking, are the key to the future, whether it be solving environmental or health challenges, or creating companies that support a strong economy.
Communities need to create and support solutions that provide spaces for creative learning outside of the rigid testing and rote learning that happens inside most classrooms so that students can become our next generation innovators.
The Art Crate offers a quality program outside of the traditional school setting and provides a creative space to all youth where opportunities to innovate, explore, and problem solve are encouraged.

The Art Crate will benefit the community by providing a creative and safe outlet for its youth where solving design challenges through problem solving are explored by using real world materials and tools.
We believe in giving access to artistic freedom for every child with a focus on under- served individuals and communities.
We believe every child should be equally valued and we encourage an environment where everyone succeeds. We are aware that every child learns differently and retains information through different learning styles and
