My Creative Future

My Creative Future (MCF) is an innovative arts program that provides young adults ages 18-24 in the LGBTQIA+ community and their peer allies with the opportunity to explore the creative process through multiple visual mediums. Students will cultivate and enhance artistic abilities that can be used in any professional art career or creative environment. Classes offered under the MCF program are listed below.

Through the generosity of donors who believe in the power of creativity, this program is 100% donor funded. Participants in the MCF program have an opportunity to create and learn in a safe, supportive environment at no cost to themselves.

The Alpha Workshops is an inclusive community that embraces the strength of diversity.


Currently, our in-person classes are paused due to the pandemic.

My Creative Future: Perspective

Dates: February 12 to April 9th, 2020
Days: Wednesdays and Thursdays
Time: 5:30 pm  – 8:00 pm
Cost: Registration, materials, and subway fare are provided at no cost.

Perspective examines ways of seeing: the art of drawing objects when viewed from a particular point in space, and the manner in which our viewpoints are dependent on personal experience and personality. Participants will create three finished pieces: a floor plan, a facade rendering, and a perspectival presentation drawing. Each piece will be portfolio-quality.

My Creative Future: Portraits

Dates: November 5th to December 12th, 2019
Days: Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Thursdays
Time: 5:30 pm  – 8:00 pm
Cost: Registration, materials, and subway fare are provided at no cost.

Portrait explores all stages of creating a portrait, from quick charcoal sketches to painted conceptual representations. Creatively and thematically, participants will not be limited to a face on a page. The course examines various definitions of what a portrait is and what it can be: introspective, diverse, and interpretative. Participants create three finished pieces: a charcoal drawing, a pencil sketch, and a portrait in paint. Each piece will be presentation-quality for inclusion in a portfolio.
