Center for Creative Education (CCE) is a non-profit 501(c)3 Organization which was founded in 1994, with a mission to train teachers how to bring the arts back into school by integrating art into other classroom studies. Arts Integration is still vital to CCE’s in-school and out-of-school programs. Today CCE is utilizing its newly renovated 18,000 square foot facility in West Palm Beach to provide arts-based, technology-infused after-school programming. Arts in education is our passion while we envision a world where each child has the opportunity to learn and grow in the way that meets their needs, and allows them to reach their full potential as citizens and contributors to society.

“Playing on Pompano Beach” by Lee Krull

Lee Krull was born in Cleveland, Ohio to a family that included several generations of artists. Her talent and love for art was apparent at a young age. A “Snowbird” since the age of 5, Lee attended schools in both Ohio & Florida. At two high schools she was the winner of three consecutive Scholastic Art “Gold Key” Awards and had a drawing accepted for display in the International Art Program by the National Art Education Association and the American National Red Cross.

 

“Fanciful Flamingos” by Lee Krull

 

 

 

Moving permanently to Pompano Beach, Florida at age 15, Lee embarked on a commercial art career, while still in high school. As self-taught artist in her early twenties, she began to also show her fine art locally until 1974, when focus went to family and building her commercial art business. Now, after more than 35 years in business as an illustrator and designer for the trade; and with the children grown, Lee has come full circle. She began once again, in 2011 to create fine art.

 

“ArtisanGarden Ledge” by Lee Krull

 

 

She sketches and paints directly to canvas, creating only one-of-a-kind, original work. Since then she has exhibited in juried art shows and won award from Ft. Lauderdale to Jupiter. Lee also has received a Grant for Art in Public Places, and has been commissioned for her work.

“Hobe Sound” by Lee Krull

 

 

Lee tells The Rickie Report, “It excites me to make art emerge from a blank surface. I am compelled to create art as it gives me joy. In my work I attempt to invoke what it was about my subject that struck me and moved me to begin the work. Although I would be considered a realist, I do not wish to replicate, but to paint something the way I see it or in the way I would like it to be. I add, subtract, and re-color to satisfy my artist’s eye”.

“Summer Lime Is Sublime” by Lee Krull

 

“Finding beauty in everything, I especially love detail which both intrigues and challenges me. Working in oil or watercolor I would call myself an eclectic artist as far as subject matter and style although when I am finished there is clear evidence of my hand in all of my pieces.”

 

It’s also class time at the Lake Worth Art League!

Classes for the beginner to advanced artist start in November.

 No experience necessary!

Classes are kept small.

There is time for the individual artist to learn what he/she need to know to advance at their own pace.
