College for Creative Studies - Community Outreach

The College for Creative Studies (CCS) is committed to investing in the community, and community service is an integral part of our mission. The College is active in economic and community development and in providing special educational opportunities to inner-city students and to all who are interest in art and design.

Outreach programs such as Precollege classes, school and neighborhood art programs (Community Arts Partnerships), gallery exhibitions, and the Woodward and Toyota Lecture Series, contribute to the cultural vitality of Detroit and southeast Michigan by extending the benefits of the College to the entire metropolitan area. The College’s charter school, Henry Ford Academy: School for Creative Studies, provides a pathway for inner-city middle and high school students to higher education and careers in art and design. The Detroit Creative Corridor Center is playing a key role in strengthening the region’s creative economy.

Students in our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) programs across Detroit are challenged to think outside the box and explore new ideas. Students in this class covered everything from the science of mixing colors to creating 3-D characters that were animated and transformed into video shorts.

On Monday, March 17th, students in one of our youth photography programs experimented with creating works of art out of green food for St. Patrick’s day. When everything was said and done, they were encouraged to take the remaining foods home to eat.
