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.

“Nikk” by Isabel Saad

 

Vision:

CCE envisions 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.

 

“Untitled” by Bethany Stinnett

 

History:

In the early 1990’s a group of leaders at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach became concerned about the trend to cut back on arts education in schools. Visual arts, dance and music programs were being slashed to balance budgets. The Council commissioned a study, funded in part by the MacArthur Foundation and the Chastain Charitable Foundation, to find a way to help fill the void.

 

“Untitled” by Sarah Sherman

 

In 1994 that county-wide study led to the creation of the nonprofit, Center for Creative Education. Its mission was to train teachers how to bring the arts back into schools, by integrating art into other classroom studies. This “Arts Integration” is still the basis for what we do today. For more than two decades CCE has been partnering with schools and after-school sites in Palm Beach County to provide quality, creative educational opportunities, using the arts as the foundation.

 

“Shoes” by Isabel Saad

 

 

The Center:

Surprisingly, the Center for Creative Education’s first office was an un-used exam room at Good Samaritan Hospital. These creative accommodations were courtesy of the chairman of the committee that created CCE, Dr. Robert Brodner, a neurosurgeon who practices at the hospital.

Today, thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have our own beautiful Center in Northwood Village in West Palm Beach. The building was a roller rink back in the 1950’s and 60’s, so it is once again a place to delight children! The Center features an art gallery, classrooms, meeting rooms and is home to our administrative offices. Construction is currently underway on two art studios

Bruce Helander – Critic, Curator, Artist
“The idea that you can take a piece of paper, that you can cut it up, rearrange it and also add a three-dimensional quality with certain devices that an artist uses – it calls me.”

Miles Slater – Sculptor
“Stone is nature and you relate stone to eternity.”

Steve Manolis – Painter
“I experiment in a visual and a dimensional context with everything, all the time. Color has impact.”

Jill Krutick – Painter
“I love the abstract, expressionistic style of painting and I’ve tried to develop that over many years… a more geometric, tapestry-like focus on artwork…”

Opening their studios to the public:

 

 

o Dave Teal, a figurative artist who is a long-time resident of Old Northwood where he both designed and built his home. Teal is  a figurative artist whose work emphasizes color, shape and the use of space to suggest images and ideas. He works in painting and drawing, as well as collage and three-dimensional forms. Teal’s work has been exhibited widely in the Northeast as well as in South Florida. For these various exhibitions his work has been selected by noteworthy curators from museums such as the Guggenheim, the Whitney and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. And by curators from influential galleries in Miami including Frederic Snitzer Gallery

o Elizabeth Hutchinson, also known as Melo, was born and raised in South Florida. She attended Palm Beach State College for Graphic design in 2009. It was there that she was reintroduced to her love of the arts. In 2011 she began curating shows in order to shed light on the underground urban art and music scene. “My surroundings, love of fine art, and culture have helped shape my artistic identity. I describe my work as instinctive. Rarely do I sketch out subject matter or plan a color scheme. I love to work through the mishaps that occur when things are unplanned. Painting is a give-and-take process for me. Each piece is a problem or conversation that I’m working out on canvas”.

o Sam Perry, a noted artist who grew up in Northwood and focuses on abstract and the human figure.  He is now one of the area’s most accomplished artists. He achieved success as an abstract artist in galleries in Miami, New York and elsewhere. Then, in the wake of 9/11, Sam chose to focus on the human figure. “It was a paradigm shift for me”, he explained. “I became more aware of humanity and its frailty”. Sam is an active proponent of the arts in this community. A member of the faculty of the Armory Art Center since 1987, he is now the longest-serving person there. He has taught art at Florida Atlantic University, Palm Beach Atlantic University and Dreyfoos School of the Arts, in addition to private lessons. As an independent curator Sam has produced exhibitions at Palm Beach Atlantic University as well as in Northwood at Harold’s Coffee Lounge and, before that, at My Coffee House. He has an uncanny knack for discovering the worthy yet overlooked artists in our midst. Sam received all of his education in Florida. ” I like to paint because it connects me to my community”. Sam added, “I think West Palm Beach can become even more significant in the arts. The Norton is growing, and so is the population of sophisticated art-lovers”.

o Terre Rybovich, an artist born and raised in old Northwood known for her unconventional drawings.  She is a daughter of Tommie Rybovich, who designed and built world-renowned boats in Northwood. Rybovich herself has drawn since she could hold a crayon. Largely self-taught as an artist, she earned her degrees in politics and economics from NYU and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her first career was in social justice philanthropy. “Why do I draw?” smiles Rybovich. “As the world’s great drawers will tell you, drawing is the most direct way to perceive the world around us.” The master charcoal artist continued, “I definitely don’t see drawing as just a preliminary step to a painting.” Her drawings have been exhibited throughout South Florida, receiving critical renown. Rybovich’s “…large-scale drawings are intriguing, even if difficult to decode,” wrote the Palm Beach Post. “Fantastic reveries…skillful handling of the charcoal medium.” Another Post review praised, “Mysterious pieces…hints of hieroglyphics and a strong sense of the ethereal…an artist whose work always intrigues and puzzles—in a good way.” Now working in the Northwood Industrial District Arts, Rybovich feels deep satisfaction at the sight of the neighborhood reawakening as a creative focal point.
