The trek begins in the IDEA Workshop where creative minds are engaged through challenges and puzzles, sharpening design-driven skills in a variety of art-based activities. With four hubs — I, D, E and A — creators encounter real-world, strengths-building activities where they’ll Identify the problems, Define the details, Explore the option and Assess the solutions. Once the challenges are complete, it’s time to travel to the next level of Crayola® magic: the ColorverseTM.
