Director's Ink Creative Arts Center (DICAC)


Mission Statement

Director's Ink Creative Arts Center (DICAC)offers a variety of programs directed to youth, young adults, and the senior community. Our purpose is to provide a safe stage for youth to perform. Our nonprofit fosters individualism, confidence, and creativity within its performers.


Vision Statement

We utilize preforming arts as a discipline to engage our youth to evolve by promoting higher learning in ways that contribute to community enrichment and the economy.


Who We Are?

Director’s Ink Creative Arts Center is a NJ nonprofit 501 c (3) Corporation. We use arts-based programs to facilitate self-expression, participation and enrich social development. The value children gain while learning music, dance, art, drama, and singing, includes self-discipline, dedication, teamwork, goal setting, self-confidence, and continuous improvement.


Another aim of our center will be to provide art-therapy education programs for at risk-justice-involved, and traumatized youth to have a better future.

(DICAC)will also work closely with area schools, for profit & non-profit organizations that provide mental health cliental services to ensure that students have an overall health and well-being pursuing their artistic goals. We believe ‘arts’ education leads to: new skills; self-esteem; self-confidence, healthy bonding with peers and adults; improves youth development toward school, home, and beyond.
