Project Create is a community-based nonprofit that promotes creative youth development through multi-disciplinary arts education and art therapy. Project Create teaching artists have been working with children, youth, and families in Washington, D.C. for twenty-nine years. Our students participate in out-of-school-time art classes, workshops, open studio, field trips, and exhibition and performance opportunities. Project Create offers free creative classes and workshops at our art center in the Anacostia neighborhood of Southeast DC in Ward 8, as well as at locations in underserved neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. Courses include visual, performing, and digital media arts classes like drawing and painting, illustration, photography, collage, spoken word, fashion, music production and theater.
Project Create provides opportunities for creative youth development through accessible, multidisciplinary arts education to empower young people and amplify their voices. We collaborate with children, youth and families in an inclusive and supportive community where art is healing and transformative.
Project Create envisions a world where all children and youth have equitable access to a nurturing, artistic environment where they can realize their dreams, reach their creative potential, inspire their peers, and contribute to their communities.
OUR GOALS ARE TO:
Create Art, by providing professionally-led visual and performing arts instruction taught by experienced, engaged teaching artists in order to develop students' art skills and provide tools for creative expression, and by offering our students opportunities for public exhibition and performance in order to develop confidence;
Create Opportunity, by offering after-school programming in a safe, structured environment that promotes positive youth development and learning through cultivation of skills including critical thinking and problem solving, effective communication, and leadership; and
Create Community, by connecting students to their local environment through artistic and cultural experiences in their neighborhoods, and by encouraging respectful, supportive artistic collaboration among peers and teachers, in order to develop a sense of belonging, positive cultural identity, and civic engagement.
