We partner with local entities to provide art making pop-up stations at free local festivals and at non-profit organizations that serve the poor within and beyond downtown Los Angeles. We are also available to provide art workshops (for fee/donations) for local organizations and groups who wish to provide creative activities for their clients/members/community as well as for the purpose of corporate team building.

Opportunities for the public to create freely by providing free art supplies at partnering organizations' facilities. Minimal supervision provided but a knowledgeable artist will be present to provide assistance if needed.
Art workshops to develop or learn new skills and techniques taught by artists (stipends will be given as funds allow), in the areas including:

Host art exhibitions, performances, open house to showcase the works being produced at Creative I, as well as to the increase awareness of our services to the public who need it most. We would like to participate in any public forums relevant to issues that impact the communities we serve and share how the arts are contributing to the solution by helping individuals from the inside.
