A Creative Arts Education Toolkit
Inspired by Paul Rissmann's musical setting of
What Do You Do With An Idea? by Kobi Yamada and Mae Besom
Welcome to the home of the What Do You Do With An Idea? Creative Arts Education Toolkit! Framed around Kobi Yamada’s powerful story, this innovative learning toolkit has been specially designed by leading educators to engage primary and secondary aged students in diverse creative arts and musical performance activities.
The Arts offer us a unique way to share stories, connect with others, be expressive, and bring new ideas into the world. Harnessing the magic of Kobi Yamada's text, Mae Besom's illustrations and Paul Rissmann's immersive musical score, this educational framework provides a inspiring array of resources to use in the classroom. Through the various inquiry topics, students will be guided to create their own artistic responses to the book and even present their own performance of Paul Rissmann's music setting of the text a school or community setting.
We invite you to explore this website and discover how this toolkit will support your students to grow their own golden ideas - and maybe even one day, change the world!
