In the 21st century, creativity marks the difference between success and failure in the global community. Arts education helps children learn to think critically, navigate ambiguity, and gain the self-esteem necessary to solve problems. As the arts are eliminated from public school curricula, it is increasingly important to provide new avenues for children to experience the joys and challenges of creating art.
Clay Camps at the Archie Bray Foundation immerse students from kindergarten through high school in the creative process. The international resident artists at the Bray teach week-long sessions that explore hand-building, throwing, glazing, and firing. As a result, children gain a new appreciation for their own ideas and abilities. Your gift will help ensure that children have every opportunity to develop to their fullest potential.
