Art lets me be my true me.
CREATE makes me feel free to be artistic. CREATE offers the community an outlet to express artistically.
I can get all my emotions out in my art and work through them.
This place is good. It feels right for me to come here and work on my art, I feel safe and inspired.

A wonderful place to learn, explore and make new friends.
CREATE has an atmosphere of relaxation where I can make something I want or learn to make something in a new way.

At CREATE, I feel I am a small but important living piece of a magnificent mosaic being breathed into being by this human community.
