Nurturing the Magic of Creativity
(This is the single emotive positioning that our brand strives for on a daily basis and is the core of our organisation.)
The magic of creativity
The Canvas Club Ethos
Canvas Club celebrates the magic of creativity in a technological world by teaching children to harness conscious curiosity through arts and crafts.
What does it mean to nurture creativity in today’s modern society?
Canvas Club introduces children to the magic of a creative life.
As parents, how are we developing skills that will enable and equip our children to cope with the ever changing technological world?
For our children to thrive, we will have to equip them with the ability to be curious. Curiosity unlocks creativity.
“Live curiously in a world of constant innovation and creativity” - Elizabeth Gilbert (Author)
How do children loose their curiosity?
They reach an age where they become aware of external rewards,
Their levels of self-consciousness increase,
Their surface level self-awareness increase, or
They form limiting beliefs, and they start second-guessing themselves.
Canvas Club’s promise
To nurture the magic of creativity
To create environments where curiosity is celebrated
To create arts and crafts that are contemporary, solve everyday issues and build life skills
To unlock the magic of creativity to deal with an ever-changing technological world
To encourage inclusive innovation (group engagement)
