CREATE (Creative Residencies for Emerging Artists Teaching Empowerment) is a student-led group that promotes arts-based services. Through CREATE, Berkeley undergraduates teach classes in visual arts, theater, dance, and/or creative writing to meet the enrichment needs of local schools and community organizations. CREATE students are mentored by a teaching artist in their discipline, who advises them on curriculum design and age-appropriate activities. Participating in CREATE is a great way to learn from an experienced educator while having the opportunity to design and teach your own class.
CREATE’s artist educator mentorship is supported by the City of Berkeley’s Civic Arts Grant Program.
CREATE recruits students at the beginning of each semester. Find out more about CREATE here.
