I love CREATE Arts Center! We have the greatest time in the different art classes. The projects are so "out of the box" and so creative. And it is wonderful to see the children's faces when they bring home their projects! The teachers really relate to the children and teach them how to create art from their imagination instead of "paint by numbers". Thank you for all you do to promote the arts to our community.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing people's faces light up after they participate in different art classes. even the adults were proud of themselves!

I am the organizer of a visual arts meetup in the DC metro area and we had been experiencing a lot of difficulty in finding a "home" for our group. The first place we'd chosen (a cafe) had brought in loud karyoke and Guitar Hero during the middle of our meetups. Although my group is a "social drawing/painting group" and we love to eat, drink, and draw, when we were first introduced to CREATE Arts! in Silver Spring, the non-profit arts center was ideal for us. It was quiet, well-maintained, staffed personally by their Executive Director, Tamar, in a nice location, etc. While there was a small studio fee to attend, we took a poll of our members and decided that it was absolutely worth using their space as our "home" space. We feel we'd much rather contribute to CREATE Arts! fabulous programming for children and the arts than to buy yet another cup of overpriced latte and contribute to our own already oversized waistlines!

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

The quiet and the beautiful children's artwork showing us the amazaing variety and purity of children's artwork.

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

The executive director and her partner.

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

Make a huge difference in teaching children that only they are capable of creating their own art...and that with a little instruction, they can remain artists without feeling self-conscious.

Ways to make it better...

My experience is always good at CREATE Arts!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

probably the funding is the biggest issue

I hope this organization keeps getting more funding because we really need such organizations in the Silver Spring area.

Donate to CREATE! This is definitely my non profit of choice.
