Get cre-ART-ive!

Upturn Arts’ mission is to provide “Arts for All!” and will not turn away a young artist due to a family’s inability to pay.

This is where you can “get creARTive”!

Funds are available to reduce the cost of tuition. These funds, or creARTive grants, are awarded to families on a sliding scale based on income. Space permitting, all young artists whose families make $65,000 or less, are eligible for these funds ranging from a 25% to 90% discount on tuition.

50% of the children who attend Upturn Arts’ programming do so with a creARTive grant.

Fall break & Winter camp Grants

*Young Artists who were awarded a creARTive grant for Summer Camp 2017 can receive a similar grant for fall 2017 camps, space permitting. Send an email to to reserve a space today!

For new young artists looking to “get creARTive”, simply email with the following beginning Wednesday, August 9:

  • 2016 tax form for the Head of Household listing the young artist(s) as a dependent(s)
  • name(s) and age(s) of the young artist(s) attending

creARTive grants are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Grants are limited and registration is required. Payment plans are available in addition to the grants.

Young Artists with an outstanding balance will not be considered for future grants until the balance is paid off.

All grants are subject to a non-refundable $30 deposit per child, per session, in addition to a $4.95 registration fee and a one-time supply fee of $5. Balances are due in full one week prior to the start of the session. Grants awarded for full-week and two-week sessions may only be attended partially if paid in full. Grants will not be awarded on a day-to-day basis unless that is the format of the camp.
