Mission Statement

The Children's Creativity Museum offers hands-on, multimedia arts and technology experiences designed to build creative confidence in children ages 2-12.

Description

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

Our educational approach encourages visitors to imagine, create, and share. We move from the conventional approach of play to one of invention. We shift the focus from media consumption to media production. We promote collaboration over independence and engagement over isolation.

CONNECTING FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES

We are located in one of the world’s most culturally diverse and creative cities. Children and families -- from all backgrounds, communities, and income levels -- have the opportunity to work side by side to create a dynamic and creative learning environment. This provides an ideal platform for collaboration, inclusion, and the celebration of each person’s unique talents.

BUILDING ON THE IDEAS OF OTHERS

Our educational philosophy stems from three core beliefs:

1. Creativity does not happen in a vacuum.
2. Innovation is not an event. It is a process.
3. A community of diverse learners, thinkers, and doers is critical to building a creative environment.
