Project Create’s custom-designed Arts Center is equipped to host a wide range of art classes in all disciplines, family workshops, open studio time, film screenings, gallery shows and arts enrichment opportunities for all ages and experience levels. Classes are offered in 10- to 12-week semesters during Spring and Fall. For six weeks in the summer, Project Create offers an arts enrichment camp at our center for elementary and middle school students, with additional options for teens and youth.
About the Project Create Arts Center
The Project Create Arts Center, opened in 2015, is full of art supplies and equipment, computers with creative design software, state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, and a talented staff of experienced teaching artists and art therapists. Multidisciplinary studio classes (such as mixed-media collage, jewelry making, graphic design, dance, theater improv, and drawing & painting) are provided daily, year-round in three semesters. Each day from 3:00 to 4:40pm, after school and before Project Create classes begin, we host an open studio where experienced arts educators lead participants in an accepting and creative artistic environment. Students can participate in as many after-school classes as they choose; all classes are free.
In January 2019, Project Create began offering digital media classes. Our studio is fully equipped with sound and recording equipment, DJ and podcast equipment, video and photo technology, new computers with graphic design capabilities, and 3-D printers. Classes provide advanced education and training in digital media arts where teens and young adults can combine art and technology, mixing their unique voices through film, photography, illustration and music. This program is designed to develop and nurture leadership skills, cultivate critical thinkers, produce creative work that reflects students’ interests, and amplify youth voices to drive creative change in their community.
