Mission & History
Open to all, Creative Arts Group provides classes, exhibitions and programs in the arts for children and adults in a friendly and nurturing environment, providing a means for discovering creative self-expression.
Founded in Sierra Madre in 1960, Creative Arts Group (CAG) is a nonprofit art center providing a friendly and nurturing environment for people of all ages, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds. Bringing together the richness of our diverse community through programs, exhibitions, and workshops, CAG provides a means for discovering creative self-expression and developing an understanding and appreciation of others through the arts.
Creative Arts Group is a vital, energetic, art center and gallery attracting more than 2000 students annually who both shop and take classes. The organization aims to enrich the lives of individuals through the arts—a place where children and adults come to experience the joy of creating art as well as to appreciate the artistic talents of others.
