Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that "to be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."
The Children's Arts Guild helps children transcend limiting expectations and explore and develop their authentic selves through creativity education.
We believe that creativity education is instrumental in helping children become creative problem solvers, develop self-regard, and feel empowered to take action in the world. Our programs are designed to encourage children to embrace, value, and express their own experiences, and in the process discover the joy and excitement of learning.
