Tuesday, October 28, 2014


On Octobery 23rd students at Denver Place Elementary, along with students from around the country, participated in an event to promote creative and critical thinking skills called EveryArtist.
                        Everyartist Live! is a national event created to give young artists a time, place
                        and community to create, share and enjoy art, while raising awareness of how
                        important creativity is to our future.
                        Everyartist.me was founded by nationally recognized artist Brendan O’Connell,
                        and is supported by leaders in education and businesses that understand how
                        important creativity and innovation are to everything we do.
                       Creativity is the foundation on which new ideas are built:
                       • Creativity is critical to developing minds;
                       • Participation in the arts improves problem solving abilities and is
                         correlated to higher test scores;
                       • Creativity is shown to increase motivation, cooperation, and self-esteem;
                       • A movement called STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) to
                       STEAM is emerging. STEAM adds Art+ Design into STEM. We need to
                       get ahead of the curve;
                       • The workforce of the future is facing some very complex problems that will
                       require creativity and innovation to solve.
                       Everyartist Live! helps organize kids across the nation to participate in a single
                       art project to inspire creative interpretations of a shared theme. This year, young
                       artists will produce original artwork based on the theme “My Favorite Story”.
                       Last year more than 230,000 children in 46 states across the U.S. shared a day
                       of imagination, creativity, and community — and in the process broke a world
                       record for the largest single-day art event in history.
