YOUNG CREATIVES – Youth Art Program
We are currently raising funds to buy art supplies, buy framing supplies, provide transportation for the kids to the gallery, better compensate teaching artists, and hire a program coordinator.
Create:Fixate is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so all donations are tax deductible!
About the Young Creatives Art Program:
Create:Fixate works with different community youth groups as a supplement to their regular arts curriculum. Students are given a themed art project that teaches self expression, goal-setting, and project management. The program culminates in their participation in a major Create:Fixate exhibit, allowing the young creatives to present themselves and their art to the public for the first time.
Critical, direct engagement with Create:Fixate artists and arts professionals gives deserving young people a wider view of life beyond high school and introduces them to a range of productive and valuable careers in the arts (artist, curator, exhibition designer, event producer, etc.).
Past and Future Community Partners Include:
Youth Speak Collective, Green Ambassadors, Sun Valley High School, Venice Arts, A Place Called Home, and the Boys and Girls Club. If you know of a community group that would like to work with us, please feel free to contact us and make the connection.
