Marion…. On Friday, State Representative Dave Severin (R-Benton) visited a fourth grade music class at Lincoln Elementary School in Johnston City. The visit took place to bring awareness to National Keep Kids Creative Week, which occurs once a year during the third week of September.
After watching his son and now grandsons grow up, Rep. Severin knows that creativity comes easy to all kids.
“Being able to express your creativity is one the many fun aspects of being a kid.” Severin said, “As I have watched my son and now grandsons grow up over time, it makes me believe creativity just comes so naturally to children. From the art projects brought home from school to musical performances, you really see how they all are overflowing with creativity.”
Creativity may come natural to kids but Rep. Severin knows it is important that we are continually supporting and cultivating it in schools.
“It is important that our schools continue to foster creativity in our kids through music, art, and other creative programs, otherwise it will be lost on them sooner than we think.” Severin said “The best ideas come from dreamers, and as far as I am concerned you can never have too ma
ny good ideas. So it is important to recognize National Keep Kids Creative Week and promote creativity in all our kids.
