About The Center For Creative Education:

 

The Center for Creative Education is an educational nonprofit that strengthens the presence of the arts in the classrooms of Palm Beach County, Florida. Today, our Teaching Artists work with thousands of children in schools and after-school programs throughout the County, as well as at our Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. A majority of the students we work with are considered “at risk” of educational failure. The arts-based programs we provide are a very powerful way to improve these students’ chances of success; both academically and personally. CCE also works with advanced students who benefit from the opportunity to delve deeply into subjects through the arts and develop their creative thinking and problem solving skills. At our Center, in the Northwood Village section of West Palm Beach,we provide arts instruction for children and adults, we host art shows in our Gallery and serve as a base for many community activities. It’s also home to our administrative offices.  For more information: www.cceflorida.org

Dedicated to finding solutions instead of dwelling on problems, the THINK TANK was a forum for local artists of all kinds to come together and discuss ideas to help the local scene grow.
Palm Beach: ART WEEK and Art Synergy’s Annual Palm Beach Art Exhibition at Art Palm Beach, both produced by Art Synergy in collaboration ArtPalmBeach have become the highest regarded showcases of local art. Palm Beach: ART WEEK 2016 (calendar of events) is a program of events surrounding ArtPalmBeach – considered one of the most influential contemporary art fairs on Florida’s Gold Coast by both critics and art enthusiasts, with over 80 international galleries exhibiting contemporary and emerging artists.

This indoor show has a lot to offer to art patrons. Using high-technology, patrons will be able to see participating artists’ work in situ as well as in their exhibition areas. Artists will be demonstrating their techniques to further educate the art loving public. The Rickie Report applauds this trend, believing that better informed art lovers become more enthusiastic art patrons. The Student Art Contest participants will also be celebrated! We want to point out that there is no connection between the presenting organization, Artistic Synergy and Art Synergy (ARTWEEK at Art Palm Beach).

Jack tells The Rickie Report, ‘We created ARTNADO realizing that no one can know or predict the complete buying habits of the attendees. Our juried process took into consideration the artists’ work from talent, inspiration and creativity…we did not to classify something as “not art” because it does not fit what “we” expect… Artists need to promote themselves or they will have a limited career. Our goal is to show the artists’ creativity in the most favorable way…and demonstrate their work to appeal to all potential buyers.”
