"Creativity is the ability to form similar connections between disparate images and to create something new and hurl it into the future so it becomes a poem, or a building, or a dance, or a novel. Creativity is, in a sense, future memory." -Joshua Foer, 'Moonwalking With Einstein'

Beneath That Beguiling Smile, Seeing What Leonardo Saw

When Leonardo adjusted the size of the Mona Lisa’s head or corrected her hands or slimmed her bosom or lowered her bodice, so did whoever was painting the Prado’s Mona Lisa.

“It had to be painted at the same time,” Ms. González said. “Someone who copies doesn’t make corrections because they haven’t ever seen the changes. They can see only the surface of the painting.”

Fontainebleau Junior High principal, Timothy Schneider presented his dissertation, “The Impact of Music Education on Academic Achievement” at the National School Boards Association Conference in San Diego, Calif., as part of an Excellence in Education Forum. He indicated that music, and visual and performing arts students consistently achieve better academic scores on state testing, ACT and SAT.

“Some reasons include increased brain activity used to produce art, and the connections with neural pathways that funnel all learning. Also, the self-discipline and satisfaction associated with producing art helps students find meaning in all that they do, especially academic pursuits wherein they analyze, apply and evaluate at high levels,”

Enabling the next generation of creative thinkers!
Introduction
Created by former Disney animators and professional educators, Creativity Express is animated art education software for children ages 7-12.
Bridging art and 21st-century technology, Creativity Express provides educators and parents with a comprehensive curriculum. Sixteen animated lessons provide students with the tools they need to understand, interpret and create meaningful art. Out art guides - Tickles, Furnace, and Ruby - keep students emotionally connected to the lesson content and motivated to learn. Creativity Express is most appropriate for grades 2-8, though many adults report that they are engaged by the curriculum as well.

Through cleverly designed challenges and activities, the program subtly tests learning, knowledge and progression. Interactive challenges reinforce the concepts presented and allow application of those concepts, all the while offering rewards as well as other incentives and motivators. Creativity Builders provide the basis for hands-on activities. As Creativity Express is web-based, tracking student progress is simple, organized, and efficient through our comprehensive Teacher Account Center.

The subscription flexibility and web-based content access resolve the installation and compatibility problems of traditional software. Internet delivery allows teachers, parents, and students access our content virtually anywhere. We offer multiple products tailored to meet the varying needs of educators and parents including whiteboard licensing and full year or semester pricing.
