During Art Buddies, kids and mentors work together one-on-one on a special costume and Buddy Book that reflect each child's unique ideas, interests and strengths. Getting 3rd-5th graders to focus on an abstract concept like this at the end of a school day can be a challenge, so we use our Buddy Guide to help guide their creative journey.
Our newly reformatted guide is equipped with a planning calendar, idea-generating questions, and rough outline to concept their costume creation (kinda like a "buddy blueprint"). Special thanks to veteran creative mentor and Advisory Board member Taylor Baldry for lending his creative vision & illustrations for our newly formatted guide.
We love watching kids work with their mentors to come up with unique visions of themselves, and make their ideas come to life!
