Art is not the purpose of the studio, it’s the means to giving the kids opportunities to feed their curiosity and creativity, to express their ideas and fears. They come to the studio with ideas and dreams, and in the studio, they bring them to life. They develop their sense of perseverance and critical thinking. They try new things, they fail a lot, but no one judges them. They succeed a lot, and we witness their success and encourage them to keep going. Our manner of working with the kids allows them to develop a sense of agency and empowerment. Our goal is that they realize that they have the ability, the ideas, and the focus to make a change the world.
