Music was the biggining of CreArt movement our intention is continue working hard to awaken more musicians and help them bring thier art to life. Today CreArt teaches with violin, classes, percussion sessions, singing classes, and jam sessions.

CreArt has just begun to develop our first 4 dance classes together with Mile Zero dance and Parkdale Cromdale Community League to provide safe space for kids to experiment with movement and dance.
CreArt just has produced a short film of Boyle Street Community Services: City Embers - a drama base on the life of youth at risk who live their lifes in the streets of Edmonton.The experience of making this film has been an inspiration to CreArtisans to develop a full new component of filmaking in order to develop more material to encourage discussions about social issues in our society.
The CreArt spoken word poetry program is a open drop in activity and interactivity based on exploration of the craft of poetry. We explore poetry as a spoken word expression in performance worshops and as a literary process in writing and sharing circles. All ages and experience levels are welcome! CreArt is partnered with Sapling Poet Tree (of Boyle Street Community Services Co-op) and aims to bring communities together from all over the city in the celebration of the strength of our words.
CreArt has more than 2,500 sq ft of art in Edmonton and advocates for more spaces for art made by the public instead of public art. Example of CreArt work made by the public is the Kinnart Ravine Mural Project, at Sheriff Robertson Park in Edmonton.
