#CREATEsummer

About the Project

Here at CREATE Arts Center in Silver Spring, we provide an opportunity for people of all ages to express themselves and develop their artistic and social skills in a fun and supportive environment. Right now, we have 30 days to CREATE a More Beautiful Summerbut we need your help!  

In keeping with our 30th anniversary theme, our goal is to raise $3000 in 30 days – by June 29 – to buy paint, brushes, paper, crayons, and other fun supplies to make sure we have everything we need to inspire creativity throughout the summer... and beyond!

Please consider making a donation. Any amount will make a difference, and every donation will be matched $1 for $1!
