Why Right Brain Child?
Have you ever heard people say that they tend to be more of a right-brain or left-brain thinker? Given the popularity of the idea of "right brained" and "left brained" thinkers, it might surprise you learn that this idea is little more than a myth. It is often said those who are creative are "Right Brained", and while it is indeed a myth, it is a great metaphor for what we as an institution believe in. We believe all children are "right brained", and nurturing that creativity from an early age will help set them on a path that emphasizes critical and creative thinking.
So let your inner Right Brain Child loose! Imaginations are always free to run wild in our studio!
