Creativity-boosting activities are not just for children! In fact, we want our Abrakadoodle franchise owners and instructors to know and experience the joy of imaginative learning! This is the experience that Abrakadoodle students – nearly one-million of them – have come to love and expect! MaryAnn Kohl, a special Abrakadoodle friend, artist and author, provided a wide array of special creativity-boosting activities with a wide array of fabulous materials that included creating art with melting crayons and making block sculpture with wire to using scratch boards, creating imaginary planets, cutting up colorful materials to make collage, inventing clever puppets, creating crowns and so much more! MaryAnn also donated two of her popular arty books, which were used as prizes at the celebratory conference.
Dubbed the “King of Creativity,” special guest presenter and art educator/researcher Nate Bolby led an impressive workshop that literally demonstrated the contrast between an art environment devoid of creative freedom with an open-ended, active discovery art environment. His powerful message and research affirms Abrakadoodle’s core belief in the importance of nurturing creativity through art!
