“Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.” — George Lois
A Letter from the Director
We need to provide members of our community, and indeed our entire society, with ways to expand their creative quotient. Time and time again studies have shown how creativity has improved the whole intelligence and yet we still find it difficult to support what we cannot measure or understand. Creativity drives us beyond that of just the creation of art into understanding complex dynamics and provides us with the vision to seek out new routes for solving problems large and small. The schools are failing to teach children creatively and leading an entire generation into a path of singularity, a path that chokes itself without creative vision. Organizations like art leagues provide a resource to fill the gap, at least partially, making accessible venues where creative processes are nurtured and taught.
We have a lot to lose in our future if we don’t celebrate creativity in all it’s forms. Innovation will suffocate and progress will crawl without the encouraged practice and support of creativity. The Art League of Jacksonville serves to feed the community and fill the gap as best we can with creative opportunity and growth.
We need your support, your energy and your ideas for making a bad situation into a beacon of hope. Think of a future without art, without innovation, without growth and you will see what you can do now. Imagine what we can Create with your help… Support the Art League of Jacksonville and support the return of arts in schools. Celebrate the creative vision that is within us all.
