Cedar Ridge Creative Centre is a vibrant arts hub housed in a historic mansion. Built as a family home in 1912, Cedar Ridge is surrounded by lush gardens and scenic woods with a variety of walking trails.
The main house features the beautiful Cedar Ridge Gallery, which encompasses much of the lower floor including the library, living room, dining room and solarium. Innovative art exhibitions featuring a variety of media are held in the gallery from September to June.
The upper floor of the house, as well as the adjacent Carriage House, consists of working studio spaces where engaging hands-on creative arts programs are offered for all ages. Every year more than 1,000 adults enjoy the benefits of the low student/teacher ratio and highly qualified instructors.
Hundreds of children and youth attend classes as well as annual day camps at Cedar Ridge, such as the Expressions Summer Art Camp and the Artstravaganza March Break Camp.
