Creative Growth provides an outlet for extraordinary artists

on May 19, 2011

The Creative Growth Art Center, located north of downtown Oakland, has been serving artists with developmental, physical and mental disabilities for over 35 years. The studio has space for a few dozen artists to work in paint, ceramic, mosaics and woodwork. Located right next door to the studio is the exhibition space — the first of its kind dedicated to people with disabilities. Open daily to the public, people can observe what the artists are working and purchase their work. Proceeds go to the non-profit and the individual artist.
