Coyote Central challenges young adolescents of every race and socio-economic background to build skills, creative thinking, self-awareness, and social awareness through hands-on projects with professionals in creative fields.
Coyote Central’s vision is for Seattle-area adolescents of all racial, economic, and social circumstance to be creative thinkers who are confident in their capabilities and voice and engaged with their community.
We value the joy of exploration that kids experience when they discover their own talents and realize the possibilities open to them in the world.
We value the self-confidence that kids develop when they use tools and develop skills beyond their middle-school experience.
We value process-based learning and the freedom kids have to take creative risks when there’s no one ‘right’ solution.
We value kids exploring their racial, cultural, and personal identities in our multi- cultural community and building a strong sense of self.
We value equitable access and experience for all families so that kids from diverse racial and economic backgrounds can bond over shared interests.
We value our teaching artists – professionals in creative fields and experienced teachers who mentor with skill and dedication.
We value the social awareness and connection to community kids experience when they get out into the city doing public art or projects with our community partners.
