Innovation Learning Center supports agencies and their partners to enhance the social, emotional and educational development of children and youth.
This hands-on professional development opportunity teaches participants to use the nationally distributed Creative Minds Out of School curriculum as a tool for teaching 21st century skills through visual arts education. The inquiry-based curriculum introduces young people to the joy and wonder of viewing and creating art and capitalizes on children’s natural curiosity and readiness to create.
Formed in 2014, ILC is a consortium of like-minded individuals and organizations who partner in innovative ways to bring high-quality development opportunities to agencies and their partners.
ILC places particular emphasis on opportunities that foster programming in the areas of technology, science, engineering, math and the arts.
