Humans of Creative Arts
Now through September 29
"Humans of Creative Arts" is a project by teachers and staff created during a three-day summer professional development Arts Retreat in August.
At Creative Arts, we believe that academic artists learn best when they are able to connect learning with their creative, right side to the logical, left side of their brain.
We designed this project to help teachers understand how visual artists process information. Teachers wrote an essay about their Creative Process as an educator, shared that information with a partner to inform the portraits they took of one another. After choosing a photograph to display, each person wrote an artist statement about the portrait taken. The exhibit features these photographs and accompanying artist statements.
Special thanks to Andy Blenkush, for initiating this project, which is loosely based on Brandon Stanton's "Humans of New York." Mr. Blenkush is a Creative Arts' English Language Arts teacher (and also a photographer).

The Gallery at Creative Arts exhibits work by students, their families, and staff, as well as work by amateur and professional artists in our community.
Please contact Benjamin Lacina, Arts Program Manager, if you are interested in being part of a collaborative experience with our school.
