In response to the Corona Virus/COVID-19 outbreak in the DMV, Project Create has closed our arts center until DCPS Reopens. We will be offering our classes online. Please call (202) 889-0655 for updates.

Registration for Fall 2020 virtual classes is NOW OPEN!

We’re excited to offer our Fall 2020 classes this year starting on October 5th! Our multidisciplinary schedule has class options for children and youth from ages 5 through 24. Browse through our class offerings to find the one that best suits you! Project Create welcomes children & youth of any level of artistic skill.

Project Create’s mission is to provide accessible arts education to children, youth and families experiencing poverty and homelessness in Washington, DC. As such, District families with very low income* are given registration priority for Project Create’s free classes. All student registrations will go onto our waitlist and will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, with preference given to DC low-income residents. Students will be notified of acceptance on a rolling basis.

*Very low income, as defined by US Housing and Urban Development for 2020, is less than 50% of Greater Washington DC’s median family income (under $63,000/year for a family of four).
