It is great to have a place like Create Art Center in my community as a local artist. I am able to make use of the kiln that the center has to fire my pottery as I don't have a kiln of my own. Whenever I go there I see so much art created by the children in the area, that I am amazed at the abundant talent and also how the center handles the needs of so many children who blossom in a center like this. Art is fun, but it is also medicine for the spirit, (the act of creating) so the center offers health and art!

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

the area of ceramics and support for the ceramic arts.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them a bigger space

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

you can teach and learn there. and it provides a service to those artist that need it... both young and old

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

attentive and dedicated

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

build the art studio it deserves to provide the type of creative learning environment for the community it serves

Ways to make it better...

when I am able to contribute more time to do workshops

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

financial support, volunteers

One thing I'd also say is that...

thank you CAC
