Connor Bell –
Teaching Artist for the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity
“I love drawing, reading and writing. I am constantly coming up with new characters and story ideas. I will spend hours at my favorite coffee shop putting these ideas on paper, coming up with character designs and elaborate back stories. I also love connecting with people, just talking, listening and discovering what they are passionate about. I aspire to work in the entertainment industry and love the interaction afforded to me as a Teaching Artist for the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity. Being a Teaching Artist is important to me because I want to share the knowledge I have learned with others to help them on their artistic journey”

Anna will be working with homeschool students on voice and performance, focusing on the integration of language arts and vocal skills. She strongly believes that music integrates into every field, especially public speaking, poetry, and literature. Students will learn how to compose their song and how to have confidence in front of a crowd, be aware of their words and diction, gain a deeper understanding of how to communicate a story, idea, or message in various ways through the study of voice and performance on Thursdays. Anna teaches on Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays.

Why is a “creative” education important?
Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson explains that creativity is a “disciplined process that requires skill, knowledge, and control…It’s a process, not a single event, and genuine creative processes involve critical thinking as well as imaginative insights and fresh ideas.”1 Clearly, the arts embody creativity, and they are taking a central role in many national studies…
