WHERE ART STARTS is a self-directed program that can be integrated into any school or club’s curriculum. It is easy to streamline the program or adapt it as need be, adjusting to the composition of the participating school or class.

Old Firehouse School, a distinguished Reggio Emilia-inspired preschool in Mill Valley, California, has integrated the WHERE ART STARTS program into its curriculum for the past 8 years, with outstanding results. The enhancement in children’s creativity, language, self-esteem, and collaboration skills with peers is truly remarkable. WHERE ART STARTS has provided the children a creative experience in which to explore what art means to each and every student, in a way that showcases their individual strength. www.oldfirehouseschool.com

Art can become a tool for investigating, asking questions, forming and testing theories,
collaborating, and exploring an idea from a range of perspectives.
Art can grow a culture of inquiry in our programs.
