Spring at Creative Grounds!
Creative Grounds Fine Arts Academy would like to congratulate all the Fall productions for a job well done. Seussical Kids, Annie Jr., and Disney’s Newsies The Broadway Musical all had lessons learned, memories made, and started friendships we hope to see last for years to come.

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.
Here’s what some folks have said about our shows:
“The talent level exceeds the expectation level of ANY theater program I’ve ever been to, and I’ve been to several professional shows.”
“We loved the show! You don’t feel like you’re watching kids, they are so professional! WOW!!”
“We came expecting a cute church production. We were blown away by the professionalism and quality of the show. You could charge WAY more for these tickets and they’d still be worth every penny.”
