Creative Kids Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational community-based art agency located in the city of El Paso, Texas along the U.S./Mexico border region. The mission of Creative Kids is to extend the reach of art expression and digital media resources to diverse student population groups through the promotion and demonstration of the power of the arts as important communication tools for success in modern day life. The vision of Creative Kids is to become a self-sustaining regional, national and international model for promoting and educating diverse populations about the power of the arts. Through a varied array of “hands-on” working assignments strategically integrating the arts, Creative Kids is able to reach over 600 youth throughout the year, which includes disadvantaged, “under-resourced” youth through Project ABLE (Art Brokers’ Learning Experiences), children with disabilities through Project MAP (Making the Arts Possible), and children battling cancer through Project AIM (Arts in Motion). The majority of children participating in Creative Kids programs come from families of very modest socio-economic means, broken homes, and most have limited formal schooling and are largely of Hispanic ancestry. Our efforts have been recognized by several important national platforms for its success in this arena. Project AIM, was recently recognized by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities as a 2013 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award winner. Creative Kids attended the awards ceremony at the White House on November 22, 2013 to receive the award and a $10,000 grant from First Lady Michelle Obama. Former pediatric cancer patient Miranda Luna accompanied Executive Director Andrea Gates-Ingle at the White House ceremony and current Project AIM participant Danayshia Pritchard gave the opening ceremony speech on the program impact. creative kids joined Society6 on November 6, 2014
