Welcome to Creative Arts Workshop. CAW’s core belief is that everyone is inherently creative, and we are committed to making our programs financially accessible.
At the present time, we have exhausted our financial aid funds and are not able to award assistance for the summer term. We apologize to you for this as it stands in contrast to our vision that anyone who wishes to come here can, without regard to their ability to pay. Please check back soon. We will open applications again when we have sufficient funds to disperse. Again, our profound apologies.
In fall 2021, we began piloting a new way to offer financial aid. If you want to take a class or workshop, we want you to be here. If you need financial assistance to enroll in the upcoming term, we have three ways to support you. Please choose the path that works best for you:
PATH 1 | “I can afford this class, but I need a monthly payment plan”
PATH 2 | “I need partial financial aid”
PATH 3 | “I need full financial aid”
PATH 1 | Payment Plans
All of our new classes come with a payment plan option. First, shop for classes with our online catalog. Then, click on “Register Now” to begin the checkout process. Once you’ve added the class to your cart, you can select a payment plan that works for you.
PATH 2 + 3 | Financial Aid Packages
If you need partial or full financial aid, CAW is not requiring any documentation to determine eligibility. The short, simple application listed below operates on a system of trust, and a belief that you are the best person to evaluate your current ability to contribute to covering the cost of a class. Financial aid funding is limited and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Early submission is highly encouraged.
Community arts organizations like Creative Arts Workshop were founded to house creative activity and community in opposition to established and exclusionary arts venues. We oppose the idea that only a lucky few—trained, professional artists—deserve access to training and experiences in the visual arts. We hope you join us in this mission.
This innovative approach to financial aid would not be possible without the support of our generous donors. Thank you for making the arts financially accessible to all.
