Mission Statement

CREATE! serves the New York City public school community as a leading provider of quality arts education. Tapping into the city's wealth of professional performing artists, CREATE! develops long-term partnerships between artists and educators that serve to guide and inspire thousands of children each year. CREATE! is dedicated to providing motivational, alternative programs through inter-cultural arts education, offering rare opportunities for enrichment not usually available to New York City's public school students.

Description

Since its inception in 1984, CREATE! has served the New York community as a leading provider of quality arts in education in the fields of music, dance and theatre for Grades K-12. CREATE! enables public school students and teachers to work with professional performing artists through residencies, master classes, in-school performances and mentoring services. CREATE! artists work regularly with educators to develop new and unique programs designed to meet a school's educational objectives, and address the particular needs of its student population. In addition to traditional arts training, CREATE!'s residencies have addressed a variety of educational goals and standards, including Social Studies, Language Arts, Math, Science, Technology, and Health and Fitness. Such cross curriculum residencies include American History Through Song, Latin American History through Music and Social Studies through Dance. Tapping into the City's wealth of world-class artists, CREATE! develops long-term partnerships between artists and educators that serve to guide and inspire thousands of children each year. The goal of our partnerships is to integrate CREATE!'s music and dance residencies into the framework of a school's curriculum, reinforcing the important work being done in the classroom. Students have the rare opportunity to experience a world not usually afforded to someone of their age and/or means. With the belief that the arts help students achieve not only their educational goals but also impart valuable life lessons, CREATE! continually seeks new and exciting approaches to learning and education. The testimonials from our school partners are unanimous in their praise of our programs. Doing business as CREATE!, the organization's legal name is il Piccolo Teatro dell'Opera. CREATE! is an acronym for "Collaborative Resources for the Education and Artistic Training of Everychild!" More details about CREATE! can be seen on the web at www.createnewyork.org.
