I am an intern at CREATE Art. My experiences with them had been awesome so far. The staff are so enthusiasms and fun to be around. The workshops/classes that they been having are very unique and its allows a lot of independent and individual creativity, which I like. Plus, there are always some new ideas that I get from the classes and internship time for my own personal art projects.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

allows people to not only nourish their artistic skills, but to grow and spend time with their family members. Especially, maybe for parents and relative who don't know where to start to relate with their younger or older relative.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. amazing, and very kind. They are passionate about their professions and all always there to help out. When you are around them, it doesn't feel like a teacher relationship, but a close friend you can count on.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

spread art around the world...maybe? Open up art classes for those who can't afford art. Having more spaces and being able to accept all students who want to take the class.
