New World Kids Engages Children with Creative Thinking

by Sarah Rinner, Elementary School Program Director

Creative Action is implementing a new class into our programming, New World Kids.  We were fortunate to work with the creators of this program in August where 16 of our teaching artists were trained on the New World Kids (NWK) curriculum for 4 – 6 year olds.  NWK engages children with the creative thinking process by exploring the Sensory Alphabet, including:

  • Line
  • Shape
  • Rhythm
  • Space
  • Color, and more.

The program helps develop students’ skills in symbolizing, understanding and communicating ideas through various art and digital media. Throughout the program, our teaching artists document students’ creative works and share their discoveries with parents during a final exhibition of art.  This program is being offered to the Gullett Elementary pre-K students as part of our larger afterschool program, as well as a few other pre-K afterschool classes at AISD campuses.

P.S. Today, my favorite kind of pie is homemade apple pie, warm out of the oven.

Join us at I Spy Pie! on Saturday, October 20th at Central Market North. 12 – 3 p.m.
Family fun, arts and crafts and pie for families of all ages!

Want to volunteer? Sign up here for 1 or 2 (or both) shifts:  I Spy Pie! Volunteer Sign Up.
