Creative Economy Spotlight: Create Community Studios

C.R.E.A.T.E. Community Studios is dedicated to providing a space where the benefits of art-making impact both the individual and the community as a whole. They offer low-cost art workshops and groups, community wellness activities, and open studios to promote art-making and the creative process as a vehicle for personal growth, communication, and social change. 

They believe that the beneficial experience of art-making should be affordable and accessible to everyone, and their goal is to use expressive arts as an equalizer across cultural and economic barriers, and for participants to learn how to use art as an expressive medium to increase their general well-being.

At C.R.E.A.T.E. Community Studios, the focus is the process of the art-making, not the product. Unlike other art studios, expectations are not rooted in a product or an image. The focus is on the evolution of a piece and encouraging conversation about its meaning.
