"Creativity is surely the most valuable thing we have as humans and the only thing we possess which can never be given or taken away - the power of promise and potential to imagine things from nothing; the power to make things better, more efficient, more valuable. Creativity is about connecting the dots and linking disparate ideas. It is also a skill, a mental 'muscle' that needs development, practice, and strengthening from the earliest of ages. Personally, my creativity is a place of excitement and inspiration, as well as professional reward. To these ends, a complete arts education places creativity as the foundation of our children's development and is vital to making our citizenry valuable, productive, and successful in society. Creativity is singularly the future of humanity, and we cannot afford to ignore it. Think 360 Arts is entirely dedicated to this future and is why I am passionately involved."
-Michael Mowry, former Board Co-Chair, Think 360 Arts
"You bring all of us a sense of renewed purpose, artistic excitement, and infinite collaboration opportunities through the networking that you facilitate. Most importantly, and what none of us like to admit we ever need, you make us feel validated in the work that we are doing on a daily basis. As we wear down, this becomes most necessary for there to be a next; class, day, week, month, year, or even decade to want to re-charge for." - Educator
