An Outreach Program Initiative for Club Members

“You can’t use up CREATIVITY. The more you use, the more you have.” – Dr. Maya Angelou

Sparking Creativity

The Ferguson Crestmont Club proudly serves over 100 members of the Crestmont community every day, providing a unique and enriching after-school experience. The Art Room is an essential and thriving part of the Club, where Club members come to express themselves, foster a community through collaborative projects, and gain a sense of pride and accomplishment. Crestmont Creatives is a celebration of the incredible imagination and artistry coming out of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington.

Ms. Hadley is the Art Club Coordinator at the Ferguson Crestmont Club. She spearheaded a unique partnership with Rainbow Bakery to have an Art Show that featured original works created by members showcasing their talents, humor, and individuality. “Every day, I get to witness the incredible creative process of our members, and I am so glad to be able to share their art with a larger audience. I hope these artworks bring as much joy into your lives as they do mine!” The Crestmont Creatives Art Show was on exhibit for one week in November where patrons could view all of the submitted and displayed artwork! 

All works were available for purchase with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Ferguson Crestmont Art Fund. In fact,
several pieces actually sold during the public display! Connor, a 10-year-old member in the Art Club was one of the participants who had their painting purchased, which gave him pure excitement and confidence! 
Special thank you to our friends at Rainbow Bakery for their help and enthusiasm during the show!
