Boardroom techniques and grad school habits have been trickling down the education spectrum for ages. But decorating coloring books and building haphazard "houses" with wooden blocks are becoming more of a educational experience than ever for tiny learners. Creative education is the topic of choice for the first conversation in a series of discussions from the City and Country School and The New School. At "The Power of Progressive Education: Can Creative Thinking Be Taught?" on January 10th, attendees will learn about the century-old history of the City and Country School's progressive educational programs.
With words from creative standouts like The New School President David E. Van Zandt, Kickstarter Co-Founder Charles Adler, Industrial Designer Tucker Viemeister and Vimeo CFO Mark Pinney, you can expect a thought-provoking discussion on the state of today's creative education.
The event will take place at the Tishman Auditorium at the New School from 6pm–9pm. You can purchase $20 advance tickets until December 17th. After the 17th, tickets will be sold for $30.
