What a November at Creative Grounds!
First, Creative Grounds would like to thank all those involved in the productions of How I Became A Pirate and Cinderella. We would also like to thank everyone who came out to see the shows and helped make Cinderella be our first show in Studio One to be completely sold out for all 6 shows!
In addition to our two productions that took the stage, we also completed the Moana Jr. auditions and congratulate the cast as they move into their rehearsal sessions. Our Fall Classes are about half way through, so be on the lookout for our spring classes to be released in the coming weeks!
We've also announced our holiday programming for the 2021 Holiday Season. Be sure to check out all the fun stuff happening with Creative Grounds over the next month related to the holidays.
If you haven't seen it since its launch, we ask that you take a moment to look at our Creative Groundskeepers Initiative and consider helping to keep Creative Grounds as successful over the next few months as the last one.
Last, but certainly not least Creative Grounds would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Holiday Season.

Creative Grounds Fine Arts Academy, Inc. (CGFAA) began as Center Grove Fine Arts Academy, an extension of the Worship Ministry of Center Grove Church. In 2018, CGFAA became a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization. As the program grew, reaching students from all over the Indianapolis metropolitan area, the need for a name that better encompassed the scope of our mission, became clear. In August of 2019, we became Creative Grounds Fine Arts Academy.
Creative Grounds Fine Arts Academy is a work in progress, just as we all are. We began this program with just 30 students participating in our first production, Godspell Jr. in January 2014. In the Spring of 2018, Mary Poppins had over 150 students participating in the show. Now as Creative Grounds Fine Arts Academy Inc. we will continue to build students up to impact our community and the world around them.
Our hope here at CGFAA, Inc. is that students and families will build the relationship not only with each other and us, but also with Christ throughout the programs offered here at CGFAA, Inc. We are intentional in building relationships with the students, as well as the parents. Our goal is that through the process of a show, classes and camps, students and families alike will begin to see Christ at work in the lives of those around them. We’d love to see students and families become friends with us here at CGFAA, Inc., but most importantly to become better disciples and grow in their faith, serving in a church that best fits them.
CGFAA, Inc. is an educational theater arts program. What does that mean? Simply put, we value students and want to see them grow. We don’t want a student to come into an audition and feel the fear of being cut from a show. This means we don’t cut students from the show. Everyone who auditions will be included in the show in some capacity.
