Creative Growth serves adult artists with developmental, mental and physical disabilities who share an interest in exploring creativity. We primarily serve people with developmental disabilities who are eligible for Regional Center services. For those who are not Regional Center eligible, admission is determined on a case-by-case basis. We require no previous art experience, only a sincere desire to engage in and enjoy the art-making process.
Application and Integration Process
1. Contact your case manager, informing them of your interest in Creative Growth.
2. Your case manager contacts our Client Services Coordinator, to set up an initial studio and gallery tour. Plan to attend with either a caregiver, an ILS coach, or your case manager.
3. After an initial tour, if you are interested in attending Creative Growth, inform your case manager who will assist you in scheduling a formal intake and assessment meeting at Creative Growth.
4. Upon acceptance, the first three months of enrollment are a trial period. This gives an opportunity to fully integrate into the program. Upon successful completion of a trial period, we will meet to talk about your experience and to establish your personal goals, as they relate to your work at Creative Growth.
To set up an initial studio tour please contact:
