Innovative Arts is taking two things and aiming them directly at each-other: maker education and the teaching of mindsets. The intended outcome is to have a students learn to use their strengths, gain confidence in their abilities, see how to persevere, and approach being a beginner.
The six ‘creator types’ (engineer, designer, digital creator, entrepreneur, coder, wordsmith) are just ways to experience rapidly gaining skills, using resources, and a way to give students a choice at the end of the day.
Wouldn’t it be great to have students who have: years of experience in one of those creator types walking into their other classrooms?
School could be very interesting in a world where Innovative Arts is well-developed and connected to a creative school culture.
