Creative Impact Studios is our art, education, advocacy and leadership program offered free, to youth ages 9 to 19. The program provides high-quality, arts experiences to youth in our underserved North Central Philadelphia community who would otherwise have little or no exposure to the arts. We challenge young people to discover and explore their capabilities through the arts, to develop confidence and empathy, and to focus their passion in pursuit of a better future. Teaching artists and staff meet young people where they are in their lives, find first moments of engagement and begin the process of creative expression. Students and teachers in Creative Impact Studios produce phenomenal artworks that are exhibited quarterly in showcases for more than 500 family members, friends, and Philly art lovers, and at partner venues and events hosted throughout the year.

Open Courses Youth in grades 3-12 can register for courses across a variety of artistic disciplines including but not limited to: Mixed Media Arts; Video Production; Comic Book Design; Creative Writing; Hip Hop Dance; African Dance; Music Production + Songwriting + Recording; Fashion Design; Urban Agriculture + Sustainability; Photography; Graphic Design; Digital Storytelling + Radio + Podcasting

Middle-school & Teen Internships Youth in grades 6-12 may apply for 10-week paid internships where they work in in teams with professional award-winning teaching artists to co-create arts-based work for local clients and social causes that are looking to highlight youth voices and perspectives. There are 6 main areas of focus: Music Production + Songwriting + Recording; Fashion Design; Urban Agriculture + Sustainability; Photography; Graphic Design; Digital Storytelling+Radio+Podcasting

Summer Program Creative Studios continues during summer months in the form of a summer arts intensive camp. Students rotate through workshops experiencing a variety of disciplines and older teens gain valuable work and leadership experience as mentors and interns.
