Overview

Self-reported by organization

2015 Accomplishments - Crealdé's income from all sources has remained stable and over the last two years has surpassed pre-recession levels, including tuition, membership, fundraising and grants. - Additional offerings, the new teaching site in Winter Garden, improved marketing and the newer online registration have contributed to a tuition income of nearly $550,000 (55% of total income) from paid enrollments of 4,438 students. - During our 40th Anniversary, we have invested in further campus improvements including a $30,000 bathroom renovation, rebuilding the photography studios, paving the parking lot, upgrading electrical, and renovating the pond, which is the central feature of our tropical main campus. - We celebrated our 40th anniversary with very well-attended exhibitions including four diverse projects shared by the Alice & William Jenkins Gallery and the Hannibal Square Heritage Center: Visionary Bill Jenkins: Crealdé Founder, Artist and Philanthropist; From the Bronx to Florida: The Life Sculptures of Rigoberto Torres; and The Sum of Many Parts: Quiltmakers in Contemporary America teamed with Commemorations and Connections: Mid-Florida Quiltmakers. At the Jenkins Gallery only, we featured the Happy Returns: Crealdé 40th Anniversary Homecoming exhibition, and the Heritage Center debuted the school's St. Augustine at 450 documentary photograph project. - In its ninth full year of operation, Crealdé's most substantial outreach effort, the Hannibal Square Heritage Center, served close to 10,000 local students and visitors from through the U.S. and led Crealdé to receive a 2016 Diversity & Inclusion Award from the State of Florida, Division of Cultural Affairs. - This year, Crealdé received its first National Endowment for the Arts Art Works Grant in traditional arts in support of our upcoming exhibition, Spinning Yarn: Storytelling through Southern Art. Goal Highlights for 2016: - The primary goal is to maintain strong enrollment growth, which will feed operating reserves, development and capacity, through a rebranding campaign, which includes logo redesign, print materials, campus signage and a new website. - Curriculum: Crealdé will utilize the new Education Manager position to capture and analyze data from enrollment history, area and national trends and student feedback to refine and improve class offerings. It will take advantage of the increased popularity of workshops and offer more intensive, short-term programs with existing and guest faculty. - Exhibitions: Crealdé will produce 12 original exhibitions at our three galleries, Winter Garden City Hall and traveling exhibition venues. - Outreach: Crealdé will maintain all existing community outreach programs and continue new program to seniors with cognitive impairment.

Funding Needs

1.

Crealdé needs qualified volunteers and interns to 1) study and plan implementation strategies for the NEA 504 Self Evaluation for improved accessibility, 2) conduct evaluations and tabulate data, 3) help implement and maintain native landscaping on the main campus, 4) assist the Marketing Manager with a variety of marketing tasks. 4.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"I have had the honor to serve as Crealdé's executive director since 1995, which has given me the joy of seeing thousands of individuals--from youth to seniors--touched by the power of visual arts education, art-making and art-appreciating. I have seen worldviews shift and individual lives transformed when stories and histories are shared—across cultures—using visual art. Since 1980 when I joined the organization as a photography instructor and then the director of the Photography Department, I have seen the school blossom and produce many professional artists who have gone on to make a difference near and far. Crealdé is one of today's most vital Central Florida arts organizations. Due to the loyal support of our students and members, area philanthropic foundations and dedicated government agencies, we have been able to achieve incredible things during the recent difficult economic times. Through it all, we have stayed committed to a high level of service at our main campus and at our outreach sites. Please let me invite you, along with my staff and Board of Directors, to celebrate our most recent achievements listed here at the Central Florida Foundation Non-Profit Search website and reaffirm what our community-based nonprofit organization stands for: - Features a curriculum of more than 125 visual arts courses and workshops in photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, glass and fiber arts to students of all backgrounds, taught by a professional faculty of more than 50 artists. - Hosts 10 annual visiting exhibitions in three galleries, three traveling exhibitions, a sculpture garden of 68 pieces, nine public art installations and a permanent collection of documentary photographs and oral histories of Central Florida's diverse communities. - Provides extensive community outreach and scholarship programs to economically disadvantaged individuals and communities throughout Central Florida, out of a commitment to actualizing the ideal that the arts are for everyone and that every individual and every community has a story worth telling. - Offers unparalleled opportunities for emerging artists to be mentored by seasoned artists and to work in a studio environment. - Honors the value of cultural preservation through innovative programming that uses the visual arts to inspire individuals and empower communities. This year, we completed an exciting long range plan to help guide us over the coming years. Leading the plan are Crealdé's Governing Values, which relate directly to our mission and the idea of the ""creative village"" that our founder Bill Jenkins envisioned 41 years ago: - Visual art makes an impact on the lives of all individuals; all individuals should have access to visual arts experiences and art-making opportunities. - Crealdé transforms lives and communities by empowering individuals to communicate their individual and collective stories and imaginations and by building bridges of understanding between individuals and communities. - Crealdé will continue to play an important cultural and economic role in the civic vitality of Winter Park, the Orlando area, and the United States, as a model for using the arts to foster community spirit and cultural preservation. - Crealdé seeks to serve a broad spectrum of the local population for generations to come. This endeavor requires an investment in a stable base of employees, volunteers and supporters, as well as the careful financial stewardship necessary for sustainability, especially in the face of unpredictable change. I have the privilege of aligning our work to these tenants on a daily basis. I hope that you will visit our campuses often in the coming year and witness firsthand the creative work that is in progress every day. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and for more information regarding Crealdé School of Art. Thank you very much for your interest in our organization and for your generous support. With kind regards, Peter Schreyer Executive Director"
