Review for Create Arts Center, Silver Spring, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter has taken classes at CREATE for six years. The classes have been well-suited to her interests at different age levels and she now really enjoys a class for preteen and teen girls. It has a great balance between working on art technique at higher levels and a relaxed atmosphere that allows the girls to talk while they work, which she really likes. As a board member, I really appreciate CREATE's outreach programs, especially the smARTkids program for at risk youth. We get great feedback from the school where we offer this program -- just recently one of a student's regular teachers expressed amazement that the student was actually talking and participating in the art class. She said "he never talks in class."

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

seeing the possibilities of a small organization with a small but dedicated staff really make a difference for children and adults, especially those with special needs.

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

outstanding.

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

bring art to many more underserved children and adults.
