Children’s Creativity Museum is committed to nurturing the 21st-century learning skills of creativity, collaboration and communication in all youth and families. As part of this effort, our talented team of Educators have designed a series of art workshops that encourage young visitors to explore their own creative process. All art created in these workshops will be on display in our Spiral Gallery mid-January.
