There's a "creative spirit" in each of us.  Some are realized and others have yet to be discovered. The purpose of the "Creative Spirit" arts program is to empower children and young adults to gain personal growth through creative self-expression.

Through exposure to specialized art projects, artists, galleries, and opportunities to exhibit in art shows and participate in mural projects, students can grow emotionally and gain confidence.  We provide a safe, creative space where youth can take advantage of the opportunity to express self creatively thru art activities and deal with unresolved feelings and conflicts. 

A love for children and a desire to give-back her artistic talent has motivated Melanie Smith to develop this program for youth in the central Florida area. By working in different situations with young people through the arts, we hope to help them grow artistically, emotionally and discover their unique "creative spirit".
