Explore Your Creative Interests!
You Are What You Create is a mobile creative arts business in Kitchener-Waterloo. Our programs help children explore their creativity and discover joy from within!
You Are What You Create was founded on the belief that we are so much more than how we look or what we eat - our self-worth cannot be defined simply by external measures! Who we are as a person is influenced by many aspects including the interests, experiences, and connections we create.
Through exploring their creativity, kids can:
Find happiness, health, & worth outside appearance
Increase their confidence and self-esteem
Discover connection and community
Realize the incredible things their bodies allow them to do (such as play an instrument or engage in meaningful movement)
Through our creative programs, we hope children grow in the strengths that truly make them who they are! Our programs are recreational in nature and include: music lessons, art workshops, and movement workshops!
"Art has the role in education of helping kids become like themselves instead of more like everyone else."
~Sydney Gurewitz Clemens
We acknowledge that part of developing healthy self-esteem also involves having a healthy relationship with food and body. We want to remind children that food has many purposes from nutrition to creativity, celebration, culture and community! Check out our book "The Many Great Things About Food (and You)" to help your kiddos celebrate food and all it offers!
Creative Programs are offered in three areas: Music, Art, & Movement.
Each program is separate and you can choose which programs interest you most!
Please note that our programs do not include therapy or treatment services. If you or a loved one is seeking professional support for mental health, please contact CMHA.
