Create Now, Inc.
March 29, 2012

As a former art teacher in an inner-city school district, I believe that the work that Create Now is doing is vital. Typically, kids in a public school will receive only 45 minutes of arts instruction a week, some receive none at all. Los Angeles is a city where it's under consideration to cut 300 arts educator positions from LAUSD, meaning that despite having one of the largest concentrations of artists, LA is a city where only those families who can afford private school will be exposed to the arts. Create Now fills an important role by providing not only arts instruction to an underserved, vulnerable population but also provides these children with guidance and support if they choose the arts as a career path. Create Now and organizations like it are supporting the next generation of artists in LA who will be diverse in their viewpoints rather than a homogenized group of upper-class citizens.
