Young Creatives – Youth Art Program
Create:Fixate also works with different community youth groups with our satellite “Young Creatives” program. As a supplement to their regular arts curriculum, we work with the art students on a themed group art project which culminates with participation in a Create:Fixate exhibit. We specialize in teaching the young creatives about self expression through art, project management and goals, and how to present themselves to the public.
Critical, direct engagement with Create:Fixate artists and arts professionals gives deserving young people a wider view of life beyond high school and introduces them to a range of productive and valuable careers in the arts (artist, curator, exhibition designer, event producer, etc.).
Past and Future Community Partners Include:
Youth Speak Collective, Green Ambassadors, Sun Valley High School, Venice Arts, A Place Called Home, and the Boys and Girls Club. If you know of a community group that would like to work with us, please feel free to contact us and make the connection.

Create:Fixate and Vox Box Arts Collective, are working together to cultivate and inspire young artists to explore their talents and pursue creative careers utilizing their special skills. Each session focuses on individual portfolio development, group art projects, and workshops with creative professionals. Each session culminates in a student art exhibit.
Additional support has been received from the Eagle Rock Arts Center, Craft and Folk Art Museum, Artist & Craftsman, Blick, Utrecht Art Supplies, and Trader Joes.
