TEACHER – KTK WORKSHOPS:

  • “Become a Facilitator of Change, Using the ARTS to Solve Social Issues!”

Transformation begins when EMPATHY IS FELT during the group process. Attitudes are changed, and student artwork is used as the “Medium for the Message!”

This is an EXCITING, SIMPLE and PROFOUND process which has an unforgettable impact on teachers as well as students! An immediate product is created for use in the community.

KTK is a UNIQUE TEACHING PROGRAM, in which children become the teachers of major issues, both personal and public and current issues become understandable, manageable and even surmountable!

The GOAL of KTK is reached when a school displays the student art work in a community setting, thereby teaching others in the community, by example, relevant, factual and life changing information, proving… KIDS CAN TEACH!
