I came to Create five years ago for the summer camp and loved it. I came back several times, and now I take weekly art classes here. I have greatly improved my technique, and I feel like I learn something new every time I come here. My teacher Heena has been a great help, and she clearly is very educated and skilled in the field.

Taking classes at create has not only helped me become better at my art but better at understanding others.During class we not only learn new things about art but also learn about each other no matter what age we are.I enjoyed taking something that wasn't all that interesting and making it interesting by using different angles and perspectives.I think that create was really a great experience.

I live in the nearby neighborhood (Takoma Park)of Create Arts and really enjoy the availablity of the teachers and the classes of arts that kids can enjoy. They also have a great room for adults who gather to indulge in their artistic endeavors in the evenings. Just a fantastic place to congregate and create. It doesn't just cater to one area of art but accommodates everyone.

My daughter attends summer camp at CREATE! and adores it. I am also impressed with the work that she brings home - thoughtful, unique and fun. The staff really works to provide an experience that is truly artful, in all ways.
