Intentionality can be elusive for young people. They intend to do one of two things, either what they are supposed to do or what they are not supposed to do. As the frontal lobe develops in late teenage years children begin to make more decisions based on their emotional needs as opposed to physical needs and desires. In our modern world children begin an art with a romantic perception of the effort involved to partake in every art form. As soon as they see the immense struggle involved in creating Beauty many students quit. This is a metaphor for life itself as often times people give up on their hopes and dreams because of the realization of the enormous amount of hard work necessary to create beautiful art. Our goal is to learn how to give students opportunities for smaller daily success that can still be beautiful as they climb the ladder of progress towards the romantic Beauty that they first imagined Part of the day of learning that includes a keynote, 2 breakouts, and a "skinny" session.
