Art is fun! it develops the innate sense of caregiving in all people, teaches us how to be independent and innovative. The arts provide young people with authentic learning experiences that engage their minds, hearts, and bodies. Arts education helps students learn; it can enhance creativity, self-discipline, and help them develop the skills and confidence necessary to meet the challenges encountered during their lives.
The SPH Creative Arts Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Desert Hot Springs, CA and was founded by Hope and William Scott, who believe in reconstructing the societal norms of the way children now-a-days think by rebuilding the foundation of our youth’s upbringing through creative arts such as: theater, culinary, and fine art.
We provide a weekly after school arts program for kids facing a variety of challenges. We use both therapeutic and academic applications of all the creative arts including visual art, design, dance, drama, and music.
Our psychologist-guided mentors attempt to inspire, support, enable and empower young environment. Activities are delivered in an individual-focused, supportive, social group setting that stimulates kids' imaginations helping them to better understand the world around them.
Along with the creative learning process, our kids are also building a wealth of cultural knowledge and developing skills and tools for interpreting life's challenges and harsh realities in a thoughtful and compassionate way. That enables the children to rise above shame, fear, and negativity. As a result, students enhance their ability to communicate their insights and ideas in unique, impactful, constructive and relevant ways.
