The Children's Arts Guild helps children transcend limiting expectations and explore and develop their authentic selves through creativity education.
Children’s Arts Guild Programs:
Boys' Arts Express - BOYHOOD RECREATED
Our core program helps boys ages four to thirteen build emotional competence and resilience by supporting them in retaining their spirit and vitality. Through fun, thoughtful activities, such as visual arts, expressive movement, carpentry, cooking, singing, and community-service projects, boys learn how to recognize what they are feeling, gain confidence in expressing those feelings, and develop skills to manage them constructively. We offer the program in age-appropriate components in a variety of after-school and out-of-school settings.
Girls’ Arts Express - GIRLHOOD RECREATED
Through the program, girls will develop social-emotional skills through the spirited, active exploration of creativity and the arts. Through fun, thoughtful activities girls will learn about themselves and each other, develop a sense of community, and build a well-stocked emotional toolbox that will help them navigate the challenges of growing up without losing touch with their authentic voices. All activities will be tailored to meet the needs of the girls participating in the program. The emphasis will be on process rather than product, with guided reflection as the most important part of each process and project. The conversation will also be driven by the students wants and needs, and reflect where they are in their social-emotional development.
