New ways of living, using art to empower all abilities

​We offer alternative life success programs for "CREATIVES" (apprentices, differently-abled individuals) and their "COLLABORATORS" ​(caregivers able to continue concepts in the home environment) focused in art and design. As our special requirement, Creatives and Collaborators take on the program as a team (*on a case by case basis we may give consideration to independent participation). Bring your team and enjoy eco-creative experiences!

Our programs focus on family empowerment, workforce skill development, encouraging commitment to co-responsibility, teamwork, and rehabilitation featuring various artistic techniques applied with a focus on ​re-purposing recycled materials. We encourage the use of free time, exploring the city, and ​learning to ​live better through lifelong experiences with the practice of day-to-day activities. We foster artistic abilities to promote ​self-expression. 


Along with supporting each Creative, we also offer free, professional parent counseling support to transform relationships into empowering collaborations. 


We highly encourage a sustainable and earth friendly mindset. We revive recycled objects with inexpensive supplies and practical techniques to create high quality pieces of art for display and wear.

We host many events with opportunities for participants to practice in real life settings and gain valuable experience. For each program, we connect to local galleries/stores/festivals to showcase their creations.

​​Our Eco-Fashion Program

​In our program, Creatives focus on Fashion Design and learn techniques to create their own upcycled garments. At the end, we help them to develop their own brand and connect them to local shops and venues to showcase their work!

​Send us an email to get notified and up to date for our future seasons!

​Pre-Employment Preparation

​In collaboration with various organizations, we host workshops to develop networking, customer service and various soft skills for participants. 

​​As a hands on learning experience, participants interpret material to create an artistic piece from fabric. At the end, all pieces are displayed at an exhibition showcase where participants attend as a networking event for real life experience.
