The Creatives is a virtual blend of our Creativity Festival (grades 3-5) and CreativeCon (grades 5-8). This year (2020-2021), SBC is focusing on visual and performing arts experiences. Local artists will lead students through interactive online sessions. The Creatives are here to develop confidence, encourage self-expression, and promote problem solving skills and creative thinking.
This year (2020-2021), The Creatives are going online! From October to May, Virtual Creatives will feature unique content each month, including:
- Two recorded sessions and one live session featuring activities led by talented, local teaching artists from the creative fields. The live session will be recorded and available for a determined length of time;
- A blog where professionals in the arts will share what creativity means to them and how they use it in their everyday lives;
- An online gallery for students to share their experiences and projects that they created while participating in the sessions; and
- BONUS CONTENT: Back to School in a Pandemic (see below).

Back to School in a Pandemic
Success Beyond the Classroom (SBC) desires to capture this unusual back-to-school experience through students’ eyes by curating an online gallery of students’ writing and art work. Students in grades 3-8 are invited to document their school experiences this fall through their medium of choice. Examples could include: personal reflection/journal entry, a poem, photograph, spoken word video, drawing or painting. The SBC website will host this virtual exhibit during the fall of 2020. Learn more and upload below.
