Creative Connections’ mission is to educate young people by encouraging their awareness, understanding, and appreciation of other cultures, as well as their own, through the exchange of art. Creative Connections has been partnering with Stepping Stones Museum for Children since 2010 to bring ArtLink programs to the children who visit the Museum. Based on the success of this partnership with Stepping Stones, Creative Connections is exploring the development of a new program: MuseumLink.
Once launched, children attending participating children’s museums will create art based on their daily life, that reflects their cultures and values.
This work will be exchanged with partner museums in the USA and overseas. After examining the artwork from overseas, the children will share their insights through live videoconferencing and on a special online networking site.
