A Space for Makers, Creators, Innovators and Appreciators
CREATE Center was founded in response to the critical need for space and equipment to educate, empower and celebrate artists of all ages and abilities in our community through creativity and social skill sharing. Our technology meets tradition mindset lends not only to preserving skills for future generations, but also developing new approaches to time honored practices and expanding the evolving nature of handmade.
Our school has an educational philosophy built upon an integrative approach to art, giving students exceptional opportunities to develop their creative and critical abilities, while working with leading faculty who include many of the famed artists.
Creating a Community
CREATE Center for the Arts mission is to CREATE Community Enrichment Through The Arts.
CREATE Center envisions a home for artists in the Coachella Valley that supports our community in all aspects of creating. We believe in providing a facility that nourishes creative growth through:
CREATE Center for the Arts opened. We offered a few scattered classes and resources for local artists.
As we started to offer more weekly classes and workshops, we saw the need for a bigger space. The move allowed us to expand services and work with more of the community.
Tech Lab, 2018
In 2018, CREATE Center for the Arts opened its tech lab to the public. It offers a virtual reality studio and 3D printers to allow creators to make in a whole new space.
New Programming, 2019
CREATE Center for the Arts continued to add new programs in 2019 including a textile arts program and a printmaking program.
Looking Forward, 2020
As CREATE Center for the Arts continues to grow with more programs and members every year, we are looking toward finding a space large enough for our community.
