Welcome to the Creative Zone!

Nurture your artistic passion in an open, accepting oasis - in the heart of creative Camden!

IDEA is a friendly, welcoming community that helps nurture the creative talents of area youth and gives them the freedom to explore their artistic passion fully in a safe, reassuring environment. 


In our brand new, state-of-the-art facility where students are encouraged to express the beauty of their own spirit – often for the first time. Where they can find a home for their most brave and intimate artistic impulses, as well as a training ground for well-paid careers in the creative economy.  


For over 20 years our professional instructors have worked to nurture students’ artistic sensibilities and bring meaning to their lives and their future careers. Together, we witness the miracle of seeing youth really wake up creatively and gain a fresh, new perspective on who they are. And who they can be!  We offer arts programs that unleash the power of creativity.

“Marvel is a cornucopia of fantasy, a wild idea, a swashbuckling attitude, an escape from the humdrum and the prosaic. It's a serendipitous feast for the mind, the eye, the imagination, a literate celebration of unbridled creativity, coupled with a touch of rebellion and an insolent desire to spit in the eye of the dragon.” 

- Stan Lee
