(Kingwood, TX) It was only 7 short years ago when first reported that a new organization called the Creativity Shell was opening a makerspace for kids in Kingwood.That makerspace was a small, 1000 sq studio at the front of Kingwood that the community watched grow and grow over the years into two mobile studios, moving into different studios and finally into their own 20,000 sq foot building in the heart of Kingwood.

For anyone who has not heard about the Creativity Shell, they are a nonprofit organization on a mission to use creative trades to educate and inspire the next generation of makers.  The organization teaches classes such as sewing/textile arts, cooking, building, fencing, pottery and other creative trades to students in their studios, libraries, schools, ABA therapy centers, the juvenile justice system as well as shelters that rescue children from homelessness and human trafficking.  All classes are designed to teach children essential life skills, practical skills and positive mental health coping skills.

The organization is led by Kingwood local, Shelancia Daniel who is an educational psychologist, sewing teacher, cooking teacher, art enthusiasts, fabric/textile designer and part time bus driver. Second in command at the Creativity Shell is Mara Valentina who started working with the organization back in 2019, she is a crochet artist by trade and the facilities director at the Creativity Shell.

After teaching their classes at local sex trafficking shelters, the Creativity Shell found that poor mental health, low self confidence and low self esteem was the main catalyst for the dangerous like human trafficking that are plaguing our children.  In 2019, the organization shifted their focus to prevention and have been using their programs ever since as a medium to boost the confidence, self esteem and mental health for children as young as 3 in our community!

With programs such as their annual fashion show “Creativity Rocks” where local children get to make their own clothing and rock it down a runway in front of 500+ people to the organization's semi-annual Munchkin Market where children get the opportunity to sell their own handmade creations… The Creativity Shell has woven itself into their own fabric for the Kingwood community during the last 7 years!

On Saturday, August 26, 2023, the Creativity Shell will be hosting an open house for the community to swing by their Kingwood Studio from 10AM - 1PM.  There will be an opportunity to participate in local arts, crafts and register for the organization’s Fall 2023 classes and workshops.
