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.
