School and community-based visual arts classes, workshops, projects.

The Utah based nonprofit Children’s Media Workshop produces substantive and sustainable change in a short period of time by working across the staff and curriculum using best learning and management practices. Using the 21st Century language of media, literacy is advocated in all its forms from language and mathematics to art and technology. The focus is on building authentic learning communities that are empowered to apply critical thinking and basic skills to the latest educational and societal realities.

As a group of highly dedicated educators and community builders we combine real-time classroom experience with collaborative team-building techniques that honor individual potential while capitalizing on our extensive backgrounds, from the beginnings of Sundance to having created the largest successful teacher training in US history, the Visual Learning Workshops.

Our basic premise: nothing is more fun than learning.
