In partnership with El Paso Community College, Fabens Independent School District and their Cotton Valley Early College High School, Creative Kids provides the participating youth with focused training in professional skills that utilizes technology, visual arts, digital media, and business development and entrepreneurship. The expected outcomes are that students gain confidence, complete their high school education and associates degree simultaneously, and pursue higher education goals.
The presence of Creative Kids embodies a strategic set of critical, cognitive, affective, and psychomotor abilities that are designed to engage the students in a year-round program that is integrated into their school day, as well as an intensive summer program. Participants develop a strong understanding of the creative possibilities in life by engaging in artistically inspired activities that include: painting on canvas, printmaking, silk-screening, sculpture, photography, digital media and graphic design. This program is important because it provides opportunities for the students to realize their talents and strengths, and ultimately encourage and prepare them for success in career and higher education goals.
