Compass Arts Creativity Project


We live in an era of deep economic inequality. Trying to level the playing field can feel daunting, even hopeless. But one thing that has been shown to help is giving kids access to an arts education. We are excited to launch our Sliding Scale Assistance and Scholarship fundraiser for 2022. Please visit our donation page to learn more.


In partnership with Compass Arts Creativity Project, join @_PoetGold_ and @SuprinaSculpture on June 26th @ 7pm in a Silent Procession titled 'Say Their Names.' Gather at the corner of N. Chestnut St & Main St in Beacon, NY. We will walk in silent solidarity to Polhill Park, a few blocks away led by a 9 foot tall living sculpture designed by Suprina and then experience a brief performance by Poet Gold and Sounds of Heritage, a Newburgh Choir.


Compass Arts LOVES to provide free experiences whenever and wherever we can. Click through for a list of the upcoming FREE events in 2022 either hosted by CACP or an event where we'll be offering a free activity table or ensemble performance.


As a brand new offering from Compass Arts, we are embarking on a school-year long version of our beloved Elements program starting in the Fall of 2022. In Elements you'll find all the wonderful integrative arts experiences you've come to expect from Compass Arts, but now in an extended, innovative 3 hour program running on Mondays and Fridays that we call "playschool."


We look at images all the time, but how do we make photos that tell our OWN story? Summer Snaps is a week-long camp for youth who are curious about photography and want to learn more about how to make great pictures.


Compass Arts Mini Camps are running June 27-July 18 from 9am-1pm. Each week we will focus on two different art forms and how they can interact and influence each other.

Compass Arts Creativity Project classes, ensembles, events and camps are created for the Beacon and surrounding communities for the purpose of building those communities. Our vision is a big one. As a creativity project, we believe that communities are stronger when problem solving skills are encouraged at every age level and that the best way to build problem solving skills is through creativity. Through creative arts exploration students are given opportunities to think, and to think for themselves--to feel empowered by coming up with a story plot twist or an ending to a play or to discover the joy of being able to improvise over a musical accompaniment. We believe that our best work involves encouraging contribution, whether it is a colorful swipe of a brush, a melody or an idea. The essence of what we hope to do at Compass Arts is this, that those sometimes large and sometimes small contributions allow students to evolve into something the world desperately needs--individuals with vision.
