The Center for Creative Works is a unique work environment with a goal of developing creative work potential and cultural identity for people with intellectual disabilities. The Center Creative Works combines supported studio art development with work opportunities-including supported employment options – and community programming. Participants learn and work in drawing and painting, printmaking, ceramics, woodworking, sculpture, textiles, design, music and other media. A staff of mentor artists teach professional materials and techniques, with the goal of developing participants as artists, artisans, and designers.
Volunteers play a vital role at the Center for Creative Works. Volunteers quickly become active participants in the routine of their center and they value the various skills and contributions volunteers bring to the community. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please fill out a Volunteer/ Intern Application and bring it with you to their next volunteer tour.
The Center for Creative Works has ongoing internships and collaborations with students from: Jefferson University, the University of the Sciences, Bryn Mawr College, Haverford College, Moore College of Art and Design, University of the Arts, Springside School, Friends Select School, Boys’ Latin of Philadelphia, Harriton High School, and Masterman!
