CREATE is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.

We are dedicated to providing a space where the benefits of art-making impact both the individual and the community as a whole. We offer low-cost art workshops and groups, community wellness activities, and open studios to promote art-making and the creative process as a vehicle for personal growth, communication, and social change. We believe that the beneficial experience of art-making should be affordable and accessible to everyone.  

Schenectady & Me

Help support this community project by donating today! Schenectady & me has a goal to create art in the community made by the community! We travel to different neighborhoods to encourage and assist artists of all levels and ages to create a collage representing what they love about their community.
