Connecting at-risk children to the benefits of art education. Help make it happen.

About the Project

We know that early intervention is critical for children who are struggling academically and socially in school. CREATE's free afterschool art classes are designed for children from low-incomes homes, kids struggling to learn English or students with autism. 

CREATE Arts Center helps young children with challenges to reach their potential through quality afterschool art education classes provided free to children from low-income homes.

Every child should have access to all of the benefits of an arts-based curriculum teaching: critical thinking skills, resilience, language and literacy, peer-to-peer communication, empathy and self-confidence.


CREATE provides the curriculum, the specially trained teachers, the inspiration, materials for innovative projects from paintbrushes to clay, along with a healthy snack! .

Help us to spark imaginations and inspire arts-based learning that gives children the tools to succeed in the classroom and in life.
