The ‘Craft Your Masterpiece’ Card Deck
This deck is designed to help you come up with out-of-the-box project ideas. The card deck consists of three categories: Art Form, Medium, & Tone. Follow the directions provided in the deck to get started!
The Brainstorming Activity Sheet
While you play with the ‘Craft Your Own Masterpiece’ card deck, use the Brainstorming Activity Sheet to capture all your fun, inspiring, and wacky project ideas.
The Narrowing Activity Sheet
Use the questions on this activity sheet to select the project that most inspires you! These questions help you go from many project ideas to the project idea that is the best fit for you!
What makes our box different?
The CREA Framework
This box is designed to guides kids through three pillars of CREA’s learning framework: Inspiration, Imagination, and Narrowing. This process supports young people in moving from an inspiring idea to a completed project they’re proud of!
We believe that each child has a unique creative contribution to make, so this box supports young people in bringing their own ideas to life. Our card deck offers kids over 500 project ideas and guides them in creating a project that reflects their artistic point of view.
As young people work through the activites in this box they’ll gain a deeper understanding of themselves as artists, asking questions like ‘what inspires me?, what art forms and materials am I drawn to?, what emotions do I want to express in my artwork?’
