LEARN WITH US

Learning Together at Home and in School

We believe learning is something we do together.

By exploring ideas with people we trust, we can all learn important skills and ways of being that shape our lives, our communities and our world. Thinking of “learning as doing” helps us understand that abstract concepts like love, kindness and justice are skills we can practice each day and improve over time.

Our educational offerings and resources are designed to extend learning beyond the performances. Together with children, educators, artists, parents and child development specialists, we create arts-based learning and activity packets that welcome all children to cultivate their unique gifts and learn to build a more equitable, inclusive world.

Our Approach to Learning

At Cozy Arts, our learning resources help children explore their inner lives and develop skills of empathy, curiosity and resilience. Using the arts, we create inclusive learning spaces where children have meaningful conversations and work on activities that build their unique capacities in concrete ways. Our work is shaped by our belief in learning as doing and in three mutually reinforcing principles:

Feelings

Using art, music and imagination we focus on activities that help children learn about why feelings are important.

Friendship

Nurturing healthy relationships is a cornerstone to learning. Friendship helps us discover new ways for each person to flourish and challenge each other to grow.

Fairness

Children have a keen awareness of fairness and injustice. We’ve designed our materials to help them harness their capacities to be loving, peaceful and just.

We invite you and the children in your life to learn with us — we all learn so much more when we share our experiences together.

Designed with educators, child development specialists and families, Cozy Classroom is a supplemental education resource that brings the joy and themes of Cozy Corner into the classroom. Extending the learning that students begin in our shows, each learning and activity packet welcomes students of all backgrounds and abilities to use their creativity to explore social-emotional learning.

Cozy Classroom packets are designed to engage students with hands-on activities. Packets can be used before shows to introduce learners to what they’ll experience in a Cozy Corner performance as well as after performances to build on key social-emotional themes.

“We can’t begin to express how much Cozy Corner has meant to us — a place where we can find happiness, but also a creative way to teach children about feelings and emotional regulation. Doing this through song and puppetry has been so much fun, and watching our young son engage has been extraordinary to experience.”

–Noam Shabani, Parent

“Again, thank you for the fabulous work. I truly don’t have words to express how what you do with the kids and what they create lifts my spirits. This project is such a program of distinction for us.”

–David Tierney, Cambridge Friends School, head of school

“Cozy Arts provides tremendous opportunities for all children to participate in creative experiences that advance the artistic, intellectual, individual and social emotional progression of ALL learners.”

–Donna McDonald, Boston Public School Grade 2

–Sasha Chanoff, Parent

“I loved making puppets with you. Please come back!”

–Favi, Grade 3 Student

Creative Corner

Calling all creators! Come answer a question, share your art and join a Creative Corner conversation. We’ll pose a question each month and share what people around the country and across the world have to say through art and words.

Question of the month

For the month of September we’d like to see a drawing or read a story about – “You being generous!”
