WHO ARE WE?
Our mission is to diligently encourage Baltimore's youth to harness their creative abilities while impacting the world by exposing and granting access to arts-integrated curricula, events, mentorship, and cultural trips.
Affectionately called TAP Inc., we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to exposing young creatives to artistic alternatives for managing and communicating emotions, building healthy relationships, and strengthening confidence and self-esteem. Studies prove that students who are involved in arts-based learning are more likely to succeed in life. Therefore, we want to sow seeds of encouragement that will lead to long-term success!
In March 2018, we had our first successful event, serving 20 children at our “Create 4 Spring Break”. Our participants were able to dance, learn Fundamentals of Music Theory, create jewelry, and so much more! We had so much fun, we knew that this was the start of something amazing. In April 2019, we held our second "Create 4 Spring Break'", serving close to 40 creatives! This growth has helped us gain insight on the needs of our creatives and the parents!
Our dream is to grow into a citywide after-school program with our resources to host "pop-up shops" for children to create in their communities. For now, we will be hosting events in a church, recreation center, or a studio near you! So please make sure you subscribe to our email list to stay in the know of what we have coming up.
