CREATE Arts Center is a nonprofit organization offering arts classes, arts camps, and arts parties to children aged 2 to 16, as well as arts classes and art therapy programs for adults of all ages. The organization leads outreach programs in the form of after-school arts classes and conducts arts workshops in public and private schools. Some workshops focus on students who are struggling academically or come from disadvantaged homes. CREATE also offers one-on-one art therapy sessions and works with autistic youth at its main location. The center serves the adult population through Studio Downstairs, an art therapy program which meets for three hours twice per week. CREATE Arts Center also participates in free community events, donates scholarship certificates to other nonprofit organizations for their fund raising events and provides grant subsidized arts classes to at-risk youth.
