Fostering cultural diversity, understanding of pluralism, preservation of cultural heritage and outreach to underserved communities through free art classes are all part of the Crealdé School of Art mission. Since 1996 Crealdé has offered free, onsite outreach classes to west Winter Park seniors and youth, first at the Winter Park Community Center in Hannibal Square and since 2007 at The Hannibal Square Heritage Center. Also offered are community workshops with visiting artists and the What Heritage Means to Me field trip program, which make use of the surrounding exhibitions and historic neighborhood to engage participants in reflection about their own story and heritage.
