Fostering Creativity with Amazon Creative Galaxy

My girls enjoy arts and crafts but sometimes they need a little nudge to actually get it done. We recently discovered a fun and creative 3o-minutes amazon original series called Creative Galaxy. Creative Galaxy is an interactive art adventure series for preschoolers produced by the same people that brought us Blue’s Clues and Super Why.  The show follows characters Arty and Epiphany as they travel the world solving problems with art.  inspiring creative thinking through crafts, music and dance.

The show is designed to support a child’s natural inclination to use their imaginations to make and create awesome crafts.

My girls were excited to work along side with Arty to create their own craft project. I especially loved an episode when Arty was feeling grumpy and his mom suggested that he visit an art gallery. When he got to the gallery the owner told him to paint a picture to express himself and illustrates how he feels. In Every episode kids are encouraged to “fix it with art” showcasing an importance of art as a resource for life. The series is available exclusively on Amazon Prime Instant Video.

After watching a few episodes, my girls were inspired to create one of the food arts Arty and his friends made.  A creative and fun open face sandwich to mimic their favorite paintings. One of their masterpiece was dubbed the Silly Monster Sandwich.

The series helps make children and adults aware that people literally find themselves immersed in art most of the time: Parks use sculptures to add interest and to inform people; posters on walls give information and motivation; the clothes we wear are designed; music plays on the radio to keep your energy levels up; dance has meaning and tells stories. Whether we think of our world as art or not – it is!
