Learn about the philosophy behind art… for kids! Amy walks you through some big questions to open your mind about what we think Art is, and how it can save the world!
For over a decade, I’ve been teaching philosophy to children using stories, games, video, and more. I’m and award-winning author, and the founder of Red T Media, a multimedia children’s publishing company. I’m motivated by the belief that children should be taught how to think, and not just what to think.
I’ve been a writer since grade 2. Writing philosophy for children became my focus while I was teaching it to big kids in high school, college, and university. I wanted to celebrate children’s fearless and joyful pursuit of big questions, and to create materials that they could read themselves. I’m thrilled to see families thinking together, and I haven’t yet met a kid who isn’t brimming with beautiful ideas.
