I just love to watch kids create things. I believe that public education must allow students a chance to create something every day. Sometimes I hear that our students in school today lack critical thinking skills, and they need more problem solving skills. If that is true, how can the school system “fix” the problem? The best way is to allow kids to let their natural instinct to create to come out. This can be through art, writing, solving a math problem, or devising a unique perspective on a historical problem. I say, let kids create! Here is a picture of some of our kids working on creating pottery during their time at Appalachian Arts Studio.
