creArt Workshops

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!

Donation

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

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. Expressing oneself through art has many positive benefits: It can help channel negative feelings brought on by stress, bullying or depression and turn it into something positive. It can also 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 workshops are fun and inspiring! Both novice or experienced artists will learn something new. 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 them to imagine, create and inspire!
