CREATE Arts provides high quality, affordable programs that are as diverse as the community it serves. Professional teaching artists offer an eclectic array of mediums, from collage to cartooning – and in ordinary times offer customized experiences after school for at-risk children (most are low-income, non-native English speakers) and programs at community centers, homeless shelters, and retirement homes. CREATE's licensed art therapists offer hope and healing to people living with severe mental health challenges, including cancer survivors, veterans, and children living with autism. On March 17th, it ceased on-site programs and began working online, knowing well that art therapists are a lifeline for people coping with isolation, anxiety, and depression – both in ordinary and extraordinary times. Investing in technology, anticipating a combination of online and on-site programming for art education and art therapy, CREATE will be there for the people it serves.
