The Creativity Shell is a nonprofit organization on a mission to use creative trades to educate and inspire the next generation of makers. Our organization teaches free sewing/textile arts classes to students in public libraries, schools and shelters that rescue children from homelessness and human trafficking. Sewing/textile arts classes are designed to educate and inspire children by teaching them essential life and practical skills.
On Saturday, April 29, 2017, the Creativity Shell will host our annual gala/fashion show (Creativity Rocks! “Welcome to the Jungle”) at the historic Julia Ideson Library. This fashion show will consist of clothing exclusively designed, made and worn by 100+ students who are currently enrolled in our sewing/textile arts programs across Houston. Creativity Rocks will also feature e-textile garments that are made (and programmed) by our STEAM focused engineering students at Young Women’s College Preparatory Academy as well as clothing made by homeless youth and girls rescued from human trafficking who are also enrolled in our programs.
Funds raised from Creativity Rocks will be used to expand the Creativity Shell sewing/textile arts programs in Houston schools, public libraries and shelters that rescue children from homelessness and human trafficking.
