Event description

Description

Kanesha Baynard, author and life coach, created the Creativity Summit to support parents and their children in having the time, space, materials, and guidance to focus on connecting (reconnecting) with each other in a fun, relaxed, and creative setting.



Creativity Summit focus: Collage

A collage is a work of art composed of a variety of materials, such as paper, newsprint, photographs, watercolors, ribbons or other objects attached to background support. Originating from the French word "coller", meaning "to glue", the collage allows participants to experiment with a wide range of materials to achieve amazing end results and express themselves in a unique way.


During this creativity summit, participants will:

  • Focus on active communication

  • Create a personalized collage poster or box

  • Have fun creating together

Being creative does not automatically mean you have to be an artist (but it's OK if you are).


Being creative is about learning, growing, and developing skills that allow you to express yourself in a variety of ways.


Being creative widens our perspective on ways to approach things so we do not feel stuck or stifled.


"Fostering creativity won't just increase your child's chances of becoming the next Picasso. You're also helping him develop mentally, socially, and emotionally", says Lisa Ecklund-Flores, cofounder and executive director of Church Street School for Music and Art, in New York City


As a mother of two school aged children and a veteran educator, Kanesha understands the challenges that get in the way of a thriving relationship for parents and their children. By using creativity as a tool to bridge differences, foster common understandings, and reflect on past events, the Creativity Summit offers a safe environment for parent and child teams to grow together while having fun.
