OUR INTRODUCTORY – BASIC KTK WORKSHOPS

(Fear-No-Art workshops are for non-artists and artists alike – all can learn to create – together!)

WE USE OUR HANDS & MINDS:

  • Interactive and Hands-On techniques using simple cut & paste methods, color & design theories and quickly learned visualization skills, help participants move into the “fear-no-art” zone and GET INVOLVED in the creative process

WE WORK IN SMALL TEAMS:

  • Teamwork helps problems get easily solved and understood at a deeper, more compassionate level through intimate discussion among peers

WE CREATE VISUAL COMMUNICATION:

  • Creating a work of art is simple and rewarding, and inspires deeper reasoning by the participants, and a means to express an educated point of view

WE RAISE OUR PUBLC VOICES:

  • By encouraging school leaders to display student work ( group creations) beyond the school environment, in the community or within the state, participants get a chance to make a difference and experience a sense of pride and accomplishment

WE DISCUSS THE HOWS & WHYS: — at the teacher seminars —

  • Raising funds for schools to present the student’s art to the community
