Join us on fascinating imaginary journeys connecting with creativity through a presentation of original inspiring paintings blended with heartwarming poetry. Come to take a glimpse into children's creative minds, which are colorful and rich with associations, bright insights and ideas. Practice Explore, Experience, Examine, Elevate and Express -- Michelle's out-of-the-box interdisciplinary educating strategy that will help you facilitate young minds' creativity igniting with arts, nature, science, and environment.

Learn how to direct children's intuitive creative thinking into high thinking skills rather than focus on adjusting them to linear thinking. Draw a vision for your children, grandchildren or students in order to guide their creative potential towards fulfillment. Come to become the kind of educator children need for thriving in the future world, directing their creativity towards positive productivity with a humane approach for life, empathy, joyfulness and optimism.
