Project Create is a multidisciplinary arts education organization that provides free, after-school art classes and field trips to children, youth and families experiencing homelessness and poverty in Washington, D.C. Project Create’s programs help connect students to their local environment while nurturing problem-solving skills, encouraging communication and cooperation, and instilling self-esteem, confidence and pride. The program also promotes mentoring relationships between caring adults and young people in need of positive role models. Art classes are taught by professional visual and performing artists in topics such as theater, dance, drumming and photography. Currently, the organization partners with So Others Might Eat (SOME) and Community of Hope to serve children on-site in emergency, transitional and long-term affordable housing. Classes meet weekly and are offered in two semesters.
