Impact
Accomplishments for 2017-2018
In the spring 2018 Crealde hired a donor relations manager with 20 years professional experience as a development director. Additionally Crealde hired a facility and special events manager for 24 hours per week to keep up with demands on Crealde's main campus, including special events management.
 
Crealde's earned income from tuition and art sales was $571,414 with 2,837 students from a seven-county region. 5,641 were served in free outreach classes and workshops.
 
The Hannibal Square Heritage Center celebrated its 10th anniversary in the spring with the unveiling of the Hannibal Square Heroes Exhibition and an extensive event recognizing key people responsible for the center's first decade of success.
 
Crealde received the Program Partner of the Year award from Easter Seals Florida for its Hands-On Inspiration Fine Art Classes for seniors with cognitive challenges.
 
Storytellers XVII Teen Documentary Photography Project in partnership with the Mary S. Harrell Black Heritage Museum in New Smyrna Beach, launched a travelling exhibition with stops at Arts on Douglas and Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach.
 
Goals for 2018-2019
To increase earned income, Crealde needs to reach new audiences through non-traditional and targeted means, particularly in our West Orange area to attract students to our Winter Garden teaching site. Increased social media demands on the marketing manager means outsourcing is now necessary. Crealde seeks to fund a contracted marketer to concentrate on promoting non-revenue generating exhibitions at our three galleries. This will allow our marketing manager to concentrate on promoting our tuition based classes and workshops as well as fundraising initiatives.
 
To increase capacity, the facilities committee will create a feasibility study to include a renovated and expanded sculpture studio, expansion of the ceramics studio, and a renovation of the administration building with an additional floor to expand capacity.
 
To increase contributed income, the new donor relations manager will create a development plan to deepen donor involvement.

Needs

1. Programming/Marketing: Crealdé has diversified its curriculum to over 125 offerings, but the average class size has decreased. Crealdé needs to reach new audiences through non-traditional and targeted means. Increased social media demands on the marketing manager means outsourcing is now necessary. Ideally, Crealdé seeks a contracted marketer to concentrate on promoting non-revenue generating exhibitions at our three galleries. This will allow our marketing manager to concentrate on promoting our tuition based classes and workshops as well as fundraising initiatives. For an average of 8 hours per week, Crealdé needs $10,000 per year.

2. Board of Directors: Crealdé seeks diverse board members with a desire to advocate and fundraise for the school. Crealdé also needs donors to fund Board Member scholarships so we can have representation from the economically disadvantaged communities we serve. Annual dues are $750.

3. Programming at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center: Due to popular demand after 18 years of holding the Hands-on Fine Art Sampler for Seniors, Crealde would like to offer an additional class to accommodate more seniors. To grow to two classes, Crealdé needs $7,500. “Minnie the Mule,” part of the Heritage Center’s “What Heritage Means to Me” Program, is designed for pre-school and up audiences, teaching the history of Hannibal Square. The cost of this new program is $1,500 for 6 sessions.

4. Emerging Artist Mentorship Program: This program has helped students of all income levels grow into professional artists through a service-learning exchange program for 40 years. Currently, fellowship artists get 24/7 studio access, a free class every session, and educational support from the program manager in their art discipline in exchange for 4 service hours per week. This new program addition will expand their learning opportunity by making the entire faculty of 35 teaching artists available to mentor students on specific topics. Participating faculty would receive stipends of $250 for 5 hours of private mentoring over an 8-week session. Up to 20 fellows would get one semester-long private instruction per year. Total cost is $5,000 is per year.

Background  

Crealdé Arts Inc. was founded in 1975 by William Jenkins to promote local artists by providing studio and gallery space. With profits earned from sales and rentals, Jenkins established ArtReach to provide art experiences to seniors and disabled individuals. By 1978, Crealdé evolved into a teaching center and became a 501(c)(3) organization. In the 1980s, three artistic departments were established, and the curriculum was expanded. A fine arts gallery was established in 1980, and in 1996 the gallery was named after Crealdé’s founder and his wife.

Throughout the 1990s, Crealdé expanded on its mission, established a scholarship fund, launched the new Emerging Artist Program and established three permanent outreach sites to conduct free classes for children, teens and seniors in underserved communities. In addition, more than 20 collaborative public-art projects murals, sculptures and photo-documentaries have been conducted through partnerships with other nonprofit organizations and local governments.

In 1999-2000, Crealdé undertook an aggressive capital campaign to construct its first building addition in more than 20 years. The 3,000-square-foot expansion features a second painting studio, the Showalter Hughes Community Gallery and lecture space, and a covered porch overlooking beautiful Lake Sterling.

In keeping with the mission Crealdé deepened its long-standing relationship with the City of Winter Park in 2007 by establishing the Hannibal Square Heritage Center, which stands as a tribute to the past, present and future contributions of Winter Park’s African-American community.

In 2010, entered a partnership with the City of Winter Garden, enabling us to offer a limited number of tuition-driven classes at the new Jessie Brock Community Center, strategically located near several growing west Orange County and Lake County communities.

Crealdé celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2015 with a series of exhibitions that focused on the artistic success of our alumni and also highlighted national artists whose work celebrates America’s cultural diversity. Since then, the organization has continued with campus beautification that included paving the parking lot, improving sidewalks, modernizing teaching studios, and introducing new art media in jewelry, glass and fiber arts. In the spring of 2017 Crealdé completed a two-year rebranding campaign that included a new logo, the launch of a new website, and a beautiful new campus welcome sign.
CEO Statement

On behalf of the Crealdé Board of Directors, administration and artistic community, I want to thank you for reviewing our organization’s portrait. The work of our teaching artists touches so many people every day and our programs and projects really do use the arts as a means to connect communities, break down stereotypes, and bring understanding into our complex society.

Please let me summarize the unique role Crealdé School of Art fulfills in Central Florida’s cultural landscape today:

· We feature a curriculum of over 125 visual arts courses and workshops in digital and traditional photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, glass and fiber arts to students of backgrounds, taught by a faculty of over 50 professional faculty artists and guest instructors.

· We host 10 annual visiting exhibitions in three galleries, five traveling exhibitions, an extensive sculpture garden and nine collaborative public art installations throughout the community.

· We honor the value of cultural preservation through innovative programming that uses the visual arts to inspire individuals and empower communities. Through an extensive permanent collection of 175 framed archival photographs and oral histories as well as public art installations, we celebrate Winter Park’s historic African-American community at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center.

· We provide extensive ongoing community outreach programs and scholarships to economically disadvantaged individuals and underserved communities throughout Central Florida. This commitment expresses the ideal that the arts are for everyone, and that every individual and every community has a story worth telling.

· We offer unparalleled opportunities for emerging artists to be mentored by seasoned professional artists and to work in a studio environment.

Crealdé is truly a place where everyone can feel welcomed, learn and progress at his or her own pace and level. It’s also a place where dreams of creative expression really do become reality.

The support of our community has enabled Crealdé to continue fulfilling its inclusive mission of community service and quality of life enrichment through the visual arts and humanities. I want to thank you, on behalf of the children in the free after school art classes in underserved communities, the seniors who look forward to their weekly art class with one of our talented artists, the visitors to our free exhibitions on our main campus and at the Heritage Center and the thousands of past and present students who benefit from our affordable art curriculum, for taking time to consider supporting our organization. Without community support and grant funding, a majority of students would not be able to afford these experiences.

The arts make us better people, help create civilized communities, and bring us together in dialogue as citizens of a democratic society that values diversity in expression, lifestyle, and cultural heritage.

With kind regards,

Peter Schreyer, CEO/Executive Director

By participating in Crealdé classes, people of all ages learn specific skills and produce complete projects in photography, ceramics and sculpture, painting and drawing, printmaking and fiber arts. Every year, the Annual Juried Student show features over 100 of our adult students’ works of art. Terry Hummel of the Orlando Sentinel says: “You can count on seeing high-quality work at the Crealdé School of Art. I wish they would change their name, because the work you see there never looks like “student work.” That’s because many of their “students” are professional artists who work there to improve their art and share their knowledge (somewhat like the famous Art Student’s League in NYC).”

Crealdé School of Art’s visual arts curriculum supports the growth of professional and hobby artists throughout our area. The strong reputation of the school is a result of the high caliber of professional artists who teach the curriculum, the quality of the teaching studios, and the committed students and emerging artists the school attracts and supports.

Program Success Monitored ByHelpOrganizations describe the tools used to measure or track program impact.

Crealdé’s on-campus curriculum success is measured by enrollment trends and student surveys conducted five times per year. Each artistic department is led by a director who utilizes the feedback to design an appropriate and well-rounded curriculum.

From student Maryann Lehman: “I had wanted to paint for a long time.  I wanted someone who would cater to a beginner, where I could get individual attention. I got that, and I was very impressed with what I accomplished. I now have three paintings that I never thought I could do. I’m in the process of reinventing myself since my children are all grown, and I’ve discovered a new way to express myself.”

Description Since 1995, Crealdé has used the visual arts as a means of connecting communities: 1) For 12 years, Crealdé has provided Hands-On After School Art Classes to an average of 15 children ages 5-10 with visual arts instruction, offered in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club and municipalities in south Apopka, east Winter Garden and west Winter Park. 2) Since 2000, Crealdé has partnered with Seniors First to provide free Senior Art Sampler classes in Winter Park, Apopka, Winter Garden, Eatonville and Pine Hills. 3) Since 1996, Crealdé’s Storytellers Documentary Photography Program for Teens has given students, ages 13-17, instruction and an opportunity for self-expression that explores their heritage and communities, resulting in 15 completed projects and community exhibitions. 4) Since 2000 and 2001 respectively, Crealdé has produced Neighborhood Pride Public Murals and Monument Builders projects resulting in over 20 outdoor pieces of art in neighborhoods throughout Central Florida that reflect cultural heritage, non-violence, and drug-free living. 6) Since 1988, scholarships have been provided to an average of 65 economically disadvantaged youth each year. 7) Field trips: Over 2,400 children from Orange and Seminole County public and private schools annually participate in "A Visit to the Art Studio" Field Trip Program at Crealdé's main campus, where they create a masterpiece to take home and observe professional artists at work, and tour the gallery and sculpture garden. At the Heritage Center since 2008, 670 students annually have engaged in a humanities and arts-based “What Heritage Means to Me” Field Trip Program. 8) Crealdé supports community building with free Hands-on Workshops at over 10 festivals throughout Central Florida. 9) See separate program description on the Hannibal Square Heritage Center—Crealdé’s most substantial outreach effort.

Through public art exhibits, traveling exhibitions and private art displays, individuals and groups create artwork that immediately beautifies their homes and communities. Participants immediately reap the educational, spiritual and self-development rewards by learning a new skill and expressing their unique ideas. Children learn to enjoy art-making while gaining specific skills; teens learn technical and aesthetic aspects of specific media; and seniors have the opportunity to enjoy art-making in a social setting while improving artistic skills and dexterity.

Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state.

Through Crealdé outreach programs, people from underserved communities have the opportunity to engage in the creative process. In our harried 21st-century lives, the arts are often seen as luxuries, when, in fact, they civilize us. Participants of our programs increase their art skills, their self-expression and their confidence in seemingly unrelated educational areas. Through participating in community-based projects, participants experience a renewed respect and celebration for their community and their place in it. Americans for the Arts attest that young people who participate in the arts are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, to participate in a science fair and to win an award for writing. The arts have “a measured impact on at-risk youth in deterring delinquent behavior and truancy problems while also increasing overall academic performance among those youth.” (YouthARTS Development Project, 1996)

Program Success Monitored ByHelpOrganizations describe the tools used to measure or track program impact.

Success is measured by student surveys, monthly reports from instructors, and verbal and written feedback from students and/or their parents. In addition, programs offered in partnership with another organization receive feedback through a public impact form.

Description

Crealdé School of Art offers a unique program for aspiring art students to develop themselves into professional artists. Through the Crealdé Fellowship Program (established in 1978), the Studio Artist Program (established in 1996) and two adult scholarship programs (established in 1999), students receive mentorship, access to studios, free classes and opportunities to exhibit their best work in the Showalter Hughes Community Gallery. An average of 300 of Crealdé’s tuition-based (non-outreach) courses are free of charge to children, teens and emerging artists through work/study and scholarship programs offered by the school. Students also have annual opportunities to exhibit—and in most cases sell—their work at the Holiday Art Sale, the Juried Student Exhibition, and the Summer ArtCamp Exhibition.

The budgeted amount includes the total value of the free tuition provided, multiplied by the number of participants in the Emerging Artist Program

The Hannibal Square Heritage Center first and foremost seeks to provide programming that pays tribute to the past, present and future contributions of the historic African-American community of west Winter Park. The exhibitions are also designed to promote tourism by attracting both local and out-of-town visitors with high-quality exhibitions, artist residencies and events.

 

Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state.

Heritage Center programming is designed to inspire community respect and pride for all individuals by celebrating the unique experiences and voices of the west Winter Park community of Hannibal Square as well as illustrate the African-American experience. In the long term, communities from throughout the nation will use the Heritage Center as an example of community documentation that integrates humanities with visual arts, and curatorial best practices with community participation. Our goal is that it will be a resource and inspiration to create similar projects in other neighborhoods.

Program Success Monitored ByHelpOrganizations describe the tools used to measure or track program impact.

The Hannibal Square Heritage Center’s success is measured by visitor trends and on-going survey collection. Indicators of success include high visitation, press and media attention, requests for partnerships and strong funding. Additionally, the Center has been featured in numerous media venues in its four years of existence; it has produced high-impact projects with partners such as Maitland Art & History Association, Orange County Regional History Center, Zora! Festival, the Museum of Florida History in Tallahassee, the Ritz Theatre in Jacksonville, and the Mennello Museum of American Art. Funding has grown from the original $40,000 operating grant from the City of Winter Park to include over $100,000 from city, county, foundation and private sources.

The Heritage Center, which opened in 2007, has increased its visitation by over 20% annually to 10,289 visitors in 2011. It has become Crealdé’s center and model for outreach, serving the community with free classes and workshops, collaborative public art projects, educational and inspirational exhibitions, and documentation of the historic Hannibal Square community. Annually, the art classes held at the Center have served an average of 820 youth and 70 seniors. An excerpt from a recent letter from Bach Festival Society Board Member Michael Murphy exemplifies the impact the Heritage Center has on its visitors: “Most impressive to me is the way that the exhibition has presented the painful but very real fact that much of the 100+ year history of Hannibal Square took place under conditions of segregation and discrimination. The curators have avoided the twin perils that lie here – on the one hand, ignoring this aspect of that history which would be dishonest and devalue the impact of the Center, or, on the other hand, seeking to make a political point. Instead, the many summaries about the lives of the citizens of Hannibal Square that accompany the photographs lining the walls simply tell their story, honestly and without editing or accentuating, so that every attentive visitor can find himself back in their world.”

Description

In keeping with the Crealdé mission to make the arts accessible to everyone, main campus exhibitions are free and open to the public six days per week; exhibitions at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center are open five days per week. The Alice & Williams Jenkins Gallery, est. 1980, inspires visitors through the work of artists who excel in their medium and craft and to introduce Central Florida to national and international artists. The Showalter Hughes Community Gallery, est. 2000, celebrates the art of the Crealdé community—faculty, emerging artists and youth. The Heritage Center Visiting Exhibition Gallery combines the humanities with visual arts to explore local history, the African-American experience and Southern folklore. The Permanent Collection Gallery at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center, established in 2007, features The Heritage Collection: Photographs and Oral Histories of West Winter Park (collected from 2002 to present), as well as the Hannibal Square Timeline juxtaposing significant local and national historic events impacting African-Americans. The center also hosts a collection of indoor and outdoor community-created public artwork projects that are the result of collaborations with noted artists in residencies. The Contemporary Sculpture Garden, est. 1997, is located on the grounds at Crealdé’s main campus and features more than 60 three-dimensional sculptures and educational panels.

Budget reflects only direct exhibition related expenses and excludes utilities, maintenance and administrative overhead.

Short Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe near term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. This may represent immediate outcomes occurring as a result of the end of a session or service.

In 2017, 56,042 individuals viewed Crealde's visiting, permanent and traveling exhibitions, free of charge. Many of these visiting exhibitions were represented in local print and online press.

Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state.

One of the three tenets of Crealdé’s mission is to promote the enjoyment of visual art and to support the cultivation of lifelong aesthetic pleasure in individuals from all walks of life. To do this, the organization’s three galleries and outdoor sculpture garden are free and open to the public. Exhibiting artist and professor emeritus from Rollins College Tom Peterson: “I believe that no other gallery or museum in the Winter Park and Orlando area does more to present a variety of quality contemporary works in a setting that promotes both the aesthetic and educational aspects of the artwork that is shown and discussed.  It is a pleasure to visit the Crealdé campus—its studios, galleries, offices, and sculpture gardens, and to feel a part of its prevailing harmony and wholeness.”

Program Success Monitored ByHelpOrganizations describe the tools used to measure or track program impact.

The Exhibition and Permanent Collection Program’s success is measured by visitorship trends and on-going survey collection. Indicators of success include high attendance, press and media attention, high grant scores and artist requests for exhibitions. The Gallery Committee reviews approximately 50 proposals annually for five exhibition slots in the Jenkins Gallery. The Showalter Hughes Community Gallery and Hannibal Square Heritage Gallery exhibitions are non-competitive and selected by the Gallery Committee, Hannibal Square Heritage Center Program Advisory Committee and Executive Director according to established mission-based programming criteria.

Examples of SuccessHelpOrganization's site specific examples of changes in clients' behaviors or testimonies of client's changes to demonstrate program success.

“I wish to express how important for artists exhibiting in venues such as Crealdé’s gallery are, and how few places there are maintaining viable programs and competent staff that provide artists and the public that vital interface in a curatorial setting. Crealdé singularly in the Orlando area provides for us all an access point to such opportunities and as well, a serious and authentic channel in which the state can support the arts in a way that touches individuals and communities through this valuable asset. And so I say Bravo! Keep doing what you’re doing, enriching the cultural well-being of our region and affecting the lives of Florida’s artists in ways that very few institutions of Florida Arts establishments can do!” – Sean Sexton, exhibiting artist, Vero Beach, FL

Title Accounting Manager
Title Curator of Exhibitions, Manager of Painting & Drawing
Experience/Biography

An artist her entire life, Barbara Tiffany joined the Crealdé faculty in 2012 and serves in multiple capacities. She manages the Painting & Drawing program, teaches adult classes and workshops, and serves as curator for the school’s gallery exhibitions. After a long commercial art career, she devoted herself to her painting in 1982. Her studies in classical painting were strongly influenced by her mentor, the late Maury Hurt, at the former Maitland Art Center, where she was an instructor and maintained a studio for many years.

Tiffany’s paintings explore a wide range of subjects. Her goal is to convey to the viewer a sense of participating wonder, leading to unexpected observations, either through extreme realism or abstraction. She is always looking for new inspiration with any subject.

Raised in Central Florida, Tiffany says she always loved art and nature, and knew from a very early age that art would be a big part of her future. She started her career as a commercial artist, but says she always found time to draw. In 1980, she entered her work into art festivals, exhibitions and competitions throughout the state and on a national level, winning awards along the way. Tiffany’s early works were exclusively graphite and colored pencil.

In 1986, private lessons with legendary Central Florida painter Maury Hurt taught her the classical approach to painting, while introducing the effects of light. The mentorship dramatically changed her work and influenced her own approach, when she started teaching in 1984. A popular instructor and a mentor, she is sought-after for her compassion and sensitivity.

Tiffany’s work is included in many public collections including the University of Central Florida, Orlando City Hall, the Maitland Art Center, Radford University Art Museum (Virginia), Texas A&M University, as well as private collections. She continues to gather awards at juried competitions, and her work is solicited for state, national and international collections and exhibitions. She is a recipient of a United Arts of Central Florida Individual Artist Recognition Award.
