At WCAAD we encourage to have learners, construct, and assimilate our connections to the world and each other, through stories, inquiry, investigation, reflection, and art. Art has the emotional connectivity to our world and our communities, because they are us and we are them.
As a philosophy of learning, we value learning through creative processes as authentic catalysts for social change in our arts education. Creative learning is the change needed in education that creates a connected community and therefore a connected society. One that cares for one another and values inclusivity and diversity and equality in our shared experiences. as a creative process.
