Featured Classes

Musicianship Choral Program
4th – 8th Grade
Ages 9 – 13 years

The MusicianShip Choral Program at Project Create is an after-school ensemble for students who are interested in having fun while learning about vocal music. Students will have the opportunity to engage in unique arts-based activities and learn from singer, songwriter, certified vocal coach and producer Allison Balanc. Students will leave the program having gained knowledge in music theory, music history, basics of vocal health, technique, and performance.

Building Possibilities in Music (BPM): Beatz and Songz with Deanna Hawkins
6th – 8th Grade
Ages 11-13 years

Students will focus on developing student’s music production and songwriting skills. Students will have the opportunity to create original tracks, produce lyrics, and ultimately record a group project as they journey through the creative process from start to finish.

Shine Your Light: Mixed Media Art For Self-Empowerment
3rd – 5th Grade
Ages 8 – 10  years

This class is all about embracing your inner power and expressing who you are with self-love and creativity! Through a variety of mixed media projects, students will build self-awareness, explore their identities, express emotions, practice self-love, and support each other as a community.

Monster Lab (Movie makeup for Sci-Fi and Horror movies) with Katie Macyshyn
6th – 8th Grade
Ages 11-13 years

In Monster Lab (movie makeup for sci-fi and horror), students will learn (budget) basics of special effects makeup to create film-ready fantasy characters. In the class, we create prosthetic facial pieces, learn how to contour and create textures with cream makeup and powders, create abrasions and fake blood for stage and screen, and make full-face latex masks by making plaster molds. By the end of the course, students will create a cosplay replica of a favorite character OR design an original character they can embody, which will include not only makeup but also an upcycled costume. This class will conclude with photoshoots to display our work and students will film “master class” demos of techniques they have learned. Students will have their own set of sterile supplies. They will be masked for most of the class and focus on hands/arms and occasionally eye makeup.

HeART Space Family Art Therapy Program
Ages 6-13 years with adult caregivers

Are you feeling disconnected as a family? Are you and your children feeling the stresses of the past year? Join Project Create for Heart Space, a family art therapy group where families can strengthen their relationships and have fun together through in-person art-making with Project Create Art Therapist Melissa Muttiah. This program is for families with elementary school-aged children (ages 6-13). During weekly 2-hour sessions, you and your family will learn and use new art techniques to increase emotional wellness, decrease anxiety, and build resilience while connecting with each other. In addition to the group sessions, families will have the opportunity to participate in two one-on-one sessions with our art therapist to work towards your individual family goals.
