Children’s Creativity Museum (CCM) is a fantastic place for hands-on, multimedia arts and technology experiences for your little ones! CCM is founded on the principles of the 3Cs of 21st-Century literacy: Creativity, Collaboration, and Communication. The mission is to inspire the next generation to think creatively and act as global citizens, and it appears that CCM is doing just that for residents of and visitors to San Francisco! The Museum features animation, digital arts, special effects, music videos, and workshop activities to keep young citizens learning and engaged as they do what children do best…have fun! Here’s a preview of the exhibits at CCM:
Animators Studio: A great place for movie lovers to find out what it’s like to make your own! Children can pick their favorite character or dream up their own, and build using wire and clay. Next, they choose a scene and film their movie using a video camera and computer…you can even take it home on DVD!
Music Studio: In this interactive exhibit, children can produce and star in their own music video—also available to take home! Choose a tune, select a costume, perform on stage, or work behind the scenes to control the camera and digital background! Kids can choose from over 2,000 songs in multiple genres.
Design Studio: A place for aspiring artists and computer wizards to let their imaginations run wild as they create digital portraits combining photos, text and symbols.
Innovation Lab: Take the Mystery Box Challenge and create a one-of-a-kind innovation to solve a problem. Meet some of the Bay Area’s most innovative artists, educational game developers, and technologists and help design the media tools of the future!
Imagination Lab: Here, kids of all ages are inspired to IMAGINE an idea in our interactive hands-on environment, CREATE something original in our studio spaces, and then take their work home to SHARE with their friends and families or display at the museum. Direct a puppet show, or create a masterpiece using a variety of materials in the DIY studio.
