creArt Foundation workshops are focused on helping children and youth in Communities across the Province. These FREE Art workshops will allow children to experience art with no boundaries. Children and youth will have a safe place to openly express themselves and learn something new!
One hundred percent of all donations are used towards the purchase of art supplies for our “creArt paks”. Since our workshops are conducted online due to the pandemic, creArt has very little overhead costs.
creArt Foundation is a registered Canadian not-for-profit Organization which offers FREE online art workshops (including supplies) to children and youth in challenged home environments.
The arts have the transformative and energetic power to create social change. Expressing oneself through art can help channel negative feelings brought on by stress, bullying or depression. It can help initiate a child's creativity, build their self-confidence, assist with collaboration skills, critical thinking skills and bring about more cultural awareness.
creArt’s 12 week workshops run twice a year. Our Fall Session is September to December and Winter Session is January to April! We hope to inspire children and youth to explore their creative side and develop a love for art even after they have completed our workshops.
creArt seeks private and corporate donations to help purchase supplies for the “creArt paks”. These art paks are then hand distributed to the participants household or family shelter prior to the start of the first workshop.
We encourage each participant to imagine, create and inspire!
creArt 's mission is to enrich the lives of youth ages 6-15 in challenged home environments, by utilizing art therapy as a form of positive self-expression. Providing free art supplies and workshops, children are given the opportunity to release their stress in a fun and safe environment. Our goal is to help youth gain confidence, to expand their creative minds and assist with their individual growth, to prosper a brighter future.
creArt Foundation workshops are focused on helping youth in communities across Canada and the Globe. These FREE Art workshops allow children the opportunity to experience art without boundaries. Click here to learn more about our workshops or to sign up!

The youth are forever grateful
The quality of your art and the care you put into educating the youth, goes a long way to improving the mental health and wellbeing of our young residents. A participant shared her art piece with me once, explaining; she didn’t think she was capable of making such a piece.

We love creArt's Workshops
The creArt program provided the children and youth with the opportunity to try new art activities, engage with others during the isolating times of Covid-19 and lastly to have fun! The children, youth, and their families, all loved the program and continue to show interest in the future workshops.
