I am the luckiest person in the world to be a part of watching young people get excited about the Arts.  I love my job!

The return of imagination!

The return of imagination!

Are you ready for Halloween?  We are pretty excited over here at Arts Unleashed.  This week is Showcase week in our Producers Program where students get to show off all their creations from the past 6 weeks of classes and strut around in their costumes.  We always let children choose their own costumes and create their own characters for a performance or showcase, staying true to our motto "100% kid-created productions".

Remember when stores weren't filled with commercialized costumes and Halloween costumes were homemade?  We made costumes out of boxes, old clothing and crazy ideas.  We want to bring back that creativity and encourage children to use their own ideas.  Why not take the challenge and see what you and your children can come up with this Halloween?  Create a new character that has never been seen before.  A Pirate ballerina, a Race car driving Grandma or a Flying Ninja.  The sky is the limit with a child's imagination.

In a tech-filled world where designs are often pre-populated for our children, we want to bring back old school creativity where children were the designers of their own world and a box, a cardboard tube and a roll of tape were the tools needed to create their vehicle to see that world!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
