The Colorado Kids Create annual art completion has been a success in our school. Not only do
the children enjoy art class, but the stories that Colorado Kids Create composes helps the children learn
more about Colorado history. We hope that they are able to keep it up every year.

It is an honor for me to be able to recommend Colorado Kids Create as a real jewel in our State’s communities of art, history, education, and culture.

The opportunities they offer children throughout Colorado are rare and exciting. The students in my elementary Art classes not only enjoy learning about our area’s history but also love the fact that they get to participate in its documentation through creating art. This kind of integrative learning, incorporating art and history in a hands-on way, is learning at its best! The students (Scholar-Artists, as we call them) are so pleased to see their peers’ work – and sometimes their own – published in a story book. What a grand concept Colorado Kids Create represents! I’d love to see what they could do with additional resources.
