By creating a "one-size-fits-all" learning system, a lot of kids are left in the dark, unable to grow their imagination and learn by being themselves. So what does Keepers of the Lost Art intend to do? Give them some light!
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 03, 2014
Creativity is dead, right? Not according to Keepers of the Lost Art, a comic book company that creates and produces fun and engaging comic books for kids. The Los Angeles based business is challenging standard idealizations of education with the revolutionary theory that kids need to be, well, kids.
According to Keepers of the Lost Art, education today isn't taking into account that every child is different and deserves to explore his or her world to fully understand who they are and what they want to achieve. By creating a "one-size-fits-all" learning system, a lot of kids are left in the dark, unable to grow their imagination and learn by being themselves. So what does Keepers of the Lost Art intend to do? Give them some light!
Keepers of the Lost Art chucks out "traditional" forms of learning and focuses on inspiring kids to be themselves through the means of using one's imagination and forming friendships that rely on one-on-one interaction, not digital stand-ins. And even though these comic books are educational, they teach in a way that's story driven, wrapping the message in the story rather than presenting the message as the story. This inspires kids to be more creative, passionate and active versus having to read the usual illustrated text book.
The Keepers of the Lost Art storyline is also kid-based, spotlighting a cast of ragtag kids who come together to bring back the lost art of being a kid. And what better way to do that than read a comic book that promotes silliness and includes "outside-the-box" activities that gets the brain going?
Their Kickstarter funds will also be used to optimize the comic book's accompanying kids-only website, an online world specifically coded to allow kids to browse safely. At KeepersOfTheLostArt.com, kids can find classic games, experiments and other activities that spark the imagination and help them make the most of their time offline. The monetary goal will allow the company to present 100 fun and educational activities and to produce 20 instructional videos with kids as the instructors, forgoing traditional "lessons" and capitalizing on everyday fun.
Keepers of the Lost Art is seeking its funding through Kickstarter, the premium crowdfunding platform that allows the public to act as "backers" in order to support up and coming projects. For as little as $1, you can help Keepers of the Lost Art reach their goal of distributing their comic books and in return, receive a one-of-a-kind reward for helping to make this innovative idea a reality.
