The imagination is the capacity humans have to see what is not, but what could be—to re-imagine reality in order to see it anew with deeper insight. Awakening a sense of wonder in the young is one of the great gifts creative educators, or Animateurs, bestow on their apprentices. Riverside Imagination workshops help boys tap into their creativity through artistic projects that are rooted in story, poetry, and the fine arts.

Great leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs, and artists have discovered the power of the imagination, and so transformed cultures throughout history. Through our workshops, boys will learn how to use their creativity, and discover their “gift.”
