Mission Statement

REINVENTING EDUCATION

THROUGH THE ARTS

The Center for Creative Education uses the Arts to enrich and transform a child’s educational experience.

We bring learning to life by engaging children in hands on, multi-dimensional learning. We use visual, performing and language arts to enhance student’s knowledge of traditional subjects. So painting, music and dance are used to increase mastery of literacy, math and science. It’s creative and it works!

The Center for Creative Education is a not-for-profit 501(C)(3) organization.

Description

CCE merges ART and ACADEMICS

Research shows that arts-integrated programs like those offered by the Center for Creative Education improve a child’s learning potential and academic performance, thus increasing overall enthusiasm about school. Working on projects with CCE artists also builds children’s self-esteem and encourages cooperation and team-building.

Last year, the Center worked with more than 12,500 children in about 70 school sites all over Palm Beach County. We provide after-school and in school programming to many students considered "at risk" or those in low socio-economic circumstances.

Our work is strongly supported by teachers and community leaders who look to the Center for Creative Education for innovative ways to engage children in learning and to fill their after-school hours with constructive, creative and educational activities.

Our staff and more than 40 Teaching Artists provide programming that currently fits into two program categories, In-School and Out-of-School activities, and is augmented by programming at our new building in the Historic Northwood Village area of West Palm Beach.

We have created very strong collaborative partnerships with other arts agencies. Past collaborations have been with: The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, The Norton Museum of Art, The Kravis Center, The Morikami Museum, Mounts Botanical Garden, Klein Dance, The Preservation Foundation, The Historical Society of Palm Beach County and The Palm Beach Zoo.
