Kids need art. We do too. If we want kids to have the best chance possible to adapt to a constantly changing environment then we must nurture their creativity. It’s about about the synergy that is often expressed in art. Merging the arts with social emotional learning and academic learning helps create students who care about the world in which they live. We encourage our writers and readers and especially children to dare big thoughts and always to keep in mind the extraordinary gifts we all share, the arts, imagination, and the human spirit.

For Garn Press, science, literature, art, and philosophy are not separate categories. They are intricately connected, and through these connections it is possible for us to get a larger sense of life, with a clarity of vision that would not be possible otherwise. Most scientists and artists get this, even though most policy makers do not. Similar to Italo Calvino, Garn’s stance is that science, literature, philosophy and art create epicenters of creativity, vortexes of energy, and an aesthetic experience, that provides insights science or art alone cannot. It’s about that synergy, beyond words, beyond images and it’s why the arts matter.
