“If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life, as an unfailing antidote against the boredom and disenchantment of later years, the sterile preoccupation with things that are artificial, the alienation from the sources of our strength.”
Sense of Wonder Creations is a non-profit organization that was started in the summer of 1991 with a heartfelt desire to become a loving place for young people to improve their creative talents and have fun, while at the same time learning how to share their experiences with their peers, people in developing countries and the environment. It is an organization with a dedicated curriculum that recognizes the inherent talent, beauty, inspiration and value of young people and wants to encourage them to express it in his/her own way. We do this by bringing together different elements in a year round program: the creative arts (visual and performing); drawing, painting, clay, sculpture, theater, puppetry, music, creative writing and film blended with social, environmental, community and cultural awareness.
Sense of Wonder Creations is an organization that consists of a summer program for young people 7-12, art classes during the winter/spring sessions for young people 6 to 18 and programs with the local public schools, community and global organizations. SOWC blends a creative arts education and expression with the appreciation of ethnic diversity, caring for the environment, enlarging the understanding of peace and justice, doing local and global community service projects, and learning how one person can make a difference.
Sense of Wonder Creations works annually in developing countries facilitating creative arts workshops. We hope to be able to expand this part of the program in the future.
