Since 1974, Creative Growth has played a significant role in increasing public interest in the artistic capabilities and achievements of people with disabilities. Artwork created within our studio is exhibited directly in the Creative Growth gallery as well as in outside galleries, museums, and private collections throughout the world. Our primary focus is to encourage and support artists with disabilities in the development and exhibition of their artwork.
Our Studio program is offered 9:30am to 3:30pm, Monday through Friday. The program provides a professional art studio setting and facilitation for over 140 artists in drawing, painting, video production, ceramics, mosaics, wood, fiber arts, textiles, printmaking and photography. The program is further enriched by trips to museums, galleries, and artists’ studios. Artists develop a working portfolio and many artists produce exhibition quality artwork for sale in the Creative Growth gallery and internationally.
Youth Art Program
The Summer Youth Art and Transition Scholarship Program is offered in July and August to high school students with disabilities who demonstrate talent in the visual arts. Classes are small, so that each student receives individual attention. Students experience the excitement of discovering their creative potential and the reward of having their artwork exhibited and sold in the Creative Growth gallery.
The Rug Workshop offers an opportunity for a Creative Growth artist to earn hourly pay, while collaborating in the production of Creative Growth limited edition rugs, made in our Studio.
