Creative Arts is a nonprofit community school for the arts dedicated to fostering a passion for the arts by providing exceptional instruction in visual and performing arts to a diverse population of students. Founded in 1978 by a group of parents wishing to offer music education not available in schools at the time, Creative Arts has grown to offer year-round private instruction in over two dozen instruments (including Suzuki and traditional methods), theater productions and classes, and a variety of visual art classes for children and adults. We are currently enrolling students in classes including visual art, theatre and music. Private music lessons are available year-round for all ages.

If you would like to learn about private music or art lessons or group theater, music or art classes, please visit us online at or call 781-942-9600. Creative Arts is located in Reading, MA with an entrance and off-street parking behind Reading Town Hall near 32 Lowell St/Rt. 129.
